Gozan Five Hills

This incense creates a calm, nurturing atmosphere. This is a mellow blend of patchouli, clove, sandalwood and other herbs and spices. In Japanese “go” is five and “zan” has the meaning of mountain. This incense is inspired by the five legendary mountains enclosing Kyoto city. We invite you to burn Gozan incense for moments of quiet contemplation.

Kyozakura Cherry Blossom

An incense that stirs visions of spring. This is an artful blend of rhubarb, clove, cinnamon, and other herbs and spices. Rhubarb adds a pleasantly tart quality to stimulate the senses. “Kyo” is for the city of Kyoto and “zakura” or sakura is Japanese for the cherry blossom. In Japan, the blooming sakura is a symbol of spring, new beginnings and friendship. We invite you to burn kyozakura cherry blossom incense as a reminder of the fleeting nature of life and an opportunity to practice gratitude and mindfulness by being present in the moment.
