The fumigation of rooms with incense for purification, as well as during various ceremonies, is a very ancient tradition that originated in Japan and China several centuries ago. Gradually, it became popular in other eastern countries. Today, incense, which includes aroma sticks, is actively used in our country.
The fumigation ceremony in Japanese is called KoDo (translated as “path of fragrance” – and in Chinese it sounds Xiang Dao). Aromas in Japan have long been intended for space, clothing. In this country, incense is valued in the same way as precious metals, they are considered a symbol of wealth, status, and prosperity.
Today, incense sticks have become an integral part of the tea ceremony. This is the most convenient form of incense, which is popular in the East, and more familiar to residents of European countries. In order to light an aroma stick, you don’t need a special occasion – they can be set on fire just like that, for the mood. Incense sticks are also popular because they do not take up much space, you can even carry a small package in your bag.

When creating traditional oriental incense, mainly natural ingredients are used:
- cedar needles;
- sandalwood dust;
- oud (agarwood);
- crushed seashells;
- many more.
Each of the ingredients has the finest flavor. Natural essential oils are also added to the main composition. Keeping up with the times, Japanese incense is produced not only from natural raw materials. Many manufacturers produce them with the addition of synthetic flavors that are safe for health, which makes it possible to obtain aroma sticks with the smell of sakura, jasmine, green tea, and others.
