SKU: 1582 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


Why We Love This

Incense body powder, known as Zu-koh in Japan, expands the incense experience by providing the relaxing and grounding effects of incense, as well as its uplifting scent, all day long. This unisex, natural-smelling fragrance is a blend of cinnamon, patchouli and Borneo camphor.


Like cooking with herbs and spices, the heat of the body enhances the scent of body powder. Containing nothing artificial, it is ideal for sensitive types. Based upon ancient fragrance recipes from a sacred temple on Mount Koya, these were first used by scribes to increase awareness and clarity while copying the Sutras. For over 300 years, Shoyeido has been making the finest quality fragrance products in Kyoto, Japan. Upholding high material and production standards, they continue the craft and tradition of incense. Apply like a perfume, by dabbing a small amount on wrists or ear lobes. Each paper packet contains one half ounce.
