The purity of our ingredients and the spirit we endorse in producing our incense are equally important. The work begins with the inspection of the ingredients. Because we work with elements from nature, understanding the quality and the characteristics of the ingredients is essential. Even the same grade of a bushel of an herb will emit a delicately different fragrance from another. From lot to lot, our master blenders work very hard to to make subtle adjustments to retain the consistent fragrance of a particular incense. They consider the process to be an artistic endeavor rather than mere "production". Human sensitivity is highly-valued for Shoyeido's incense making.
The density of a single stick of incense matters significantly. Fineness or coarseness of ground ingredients affect its burning temperature. Natural incense needs to breathe. If it is too dense, it burns at a lower temperature, which changes the scent. On the other hand, if it is too loose, it burns at a higher temperature and the fragrance may be diminished.
Shoyeido's unique incense comes from a truly genuine heritage of 300 years. Without a supporting core stick, our incense delivers the pure essence of the ingredients. Our incense maintains a fine balance between density and rigidness for handling.
People at Shoyeido are meticulously involved with every detail of the process of incense making; from the ingredients to the manufacturing, and to the refined and artistic packaging. Only in this way, Shoyeido knows, the purity of incense can be enjoyed.
Shoyeido works with and respects the natural environment. All our ingredients are ecologically gathered and harvested. No animal products or testing.
