SHOYEIDO BRAND INCENSE

Shoyeido brand incense – If you've been buying cheap incense you're in for a treat! Other than our house brand we are only carrying the Shoyeido incense line because of the quality. Since this company uses only natural materials the incense smoke isn't as irritating and even asthmatics like me can enjoy these wonderful scents. The sticks are long-burning and don't have a center stick so that you can burn as little or as much as you like. Forget the "hand-dipped" incense which all smells the same, (like the carrier oils in the fragrance), and enjoy the real thing!

If you come into the shop you'll most likely smell one of 3 varieties of the incense, since they're my favorites. First is Evening Zen, a long-lasting stick, 2nd the gourmet line Frankincense and 3rd, Moss Garden from the Daily Series.

This is not the full line of all the Shoyeido Incense. If you have a favorite, let me know. We occasionally get specials & close-outs as well that are not advertised on the website.

We usually have samples as well, that we'll gladly include with a purchase, so you can try this lovely stuff!

SHOYEIDO Koh series - Good charcoal, ash, book & tools - "Koh"
Shoyeido Brand Incense
Portable Wood-chip Heater

$65.00 - Portable Wood-chip Heater – Hate the scorched smell of left-too-long-on-the-charcoal cedar bits, kyphi or herb blends? This is a great way to go! We fire ours up in the shop regularly and there's nothing better for heating various chips, blends and kneaded incense. It's a great addition to a traveling kit, too, since it cools down quickly and can actually be run in the dishwasher! Use with Miyako-Sumi, Charcoal-A to heat wood-chips, In-koh pressed incense or kneaded incense. 3 tall x 3 wide (7.6 cm x 7.6 cm)

SHOYEIDO Charcoal
Charcoal – This is the real prize of this line as far as I'm concerned. While this charcoal is a little trickier to light than the usual ritual blocks (see photo essay), it has no chemicals in it that's harmful to the lungs! It comes in two sizes and has a light delicate fragrance of its own.
