Strong cleansing & protection capabilities. Would consider this one to be a rare stick since it's capable of smoothening mobilizing negative energies out and inviting positive energies in a space. A standalone stick in setting up sacred spaces for ANY intuitive works & ceremonies. Has both Masculine & Feminine energies. Can create a strong protective sort of permeable shield. Generates a "wise" smolder that is capable of deciphering good from bad energies. Strongly repels harsh negative energies but allows positive ones to enter a space. One of our most potent sticks.

A highly skilled artisan makes most exclusive incense by hand. Made from centuries-old recipes containing fine ingredients. 

The finest quality Agarwood / Oudh is becoming increasingly rare and the reliable supply will be difficult in the future. To monitor production of our premium incenses, and with respect to the environment of nature, the amount of production of our premium incense is limited.

Shoyeido believes it is not only their responsibility to appreciate and protect these generous gifts of nature, but also to preserve the traditions of incense blending that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Shoyeido products are produced with the greatest care so our customers can enjoy the highest quality incense.

Incense for Mind and Atmosphere

It is widely believed that incense was brought to Japan over 1400 years ago, along with the conveyance of Buddhism.
Historically, Japanese Incense has often been cherished and used for religious occasions, in the social routine of samurai warriors, and more.
During the Edo period (1603-1867), incense became popular among all classes, as it was established as a tradition for all Japanese culture.
Centuries later, the Japanese style of living has changed but the appreciation and pride for incense in Japanese culture remains the same.
We are pleased to convey the concept of “life with fragrance” to our customers.
