Ideal for relaxing during a long journey, study or ceremony. Simply take a small amount of power with your finger tip, gently apply onto your palms or wrist, the body heat will naturally activate the subtle scent of sandalwood. Recommended to use when you practise meditation, yoga, wear kimono, or whenever you want to soothe and refine the spirit within your mind and soul.
This zukoh incense powder has a deep and sophisticated aroma from Rozan sandalwood, the natural fragrance made from the highest grade sandalwood from the Mysore region of India. Soft and warm, it has an elegant scent beautifully created with Kungyokudo’s original recipe and a touch of ancient Japan.
