Awaji-Baikundo Japanese Incense

The Awaji-Baikundo company was founded in the Awaji islands in 1885. Their incenses are delicate and unusual because they use Hydrangea Tea for their primary scent. The popularity of these incenses is evident because they are found in many department stores in southern Japan.

Awaji-Baikundo Wabi-Sabi Incense

WABI-SABI: Wabi-Sabi is one of the very few Japanese incenses to combine the ingredients of Reiryo-koh and Kansho. Lysimachiae herba (Reiryo-koh) is native to northern regions of South America; the sensorial qualities of this plant range from subtle-sweet to spicy.
Spikenard (Kansho), a root which offers a sweet, woody scent, has been used as a spice for centuries. An ingredient of traditional Japanese incense, Spikenard is mainly produced in China, the Himalayas, and the mountains of northeast India.

Box contains 80+, 5.5" sticks.

Awaji-Baikundo Jihi

The Hydrangea Tea story: Hydrangea Tea is often called "Buddha's Pleasure". Hydrangea Tea incense is often used to celebrate a birth, and the tea is a favorite drink of one's ancestors. It is a treat to Buddha when, with a true heart, you offer the Hydrangea Tea as repayment for kindness and thankfulness.

The Hydrangea Tea Aroma helps clear the mind of misfortune. When your mind is clouded with a sense of misfortune, the Hydrangea Tea scent will help dissipate that feeling. Hydrangea Tea has been known for its healing properties, which relieve tension and promote longer life. In New Year's Eve ceremonies, a bell is rung at midnight and the hydrangea fragrance is used to wash away the calamity of misfortune which has accumulated in your heart throughout the year. It allows you to focus on the good things that have happened recently and tear at your heart of the hateful things that are not part of your spirit.

Eternal Happiness from the Hydrangea Fragrance. The hydrangea fragrance grants you the courage and happiness to overcome what we find difficult to confront. It is considered an important part of the road to a person's paradise, and lifts your appreciation of the happiness of the 'pure land' including praying. Often referred to as the 'heart of mercy which rejoices in the joy of others', the hydrangea fragrance represents sincerity and a blossoming of eternally beautiful happiness, which you achieve when your good conduct toward others is repeated.
