Morning Star Frankincense Japanese Incense – The sweet and warm fragrance of Frankincense – soothing and warming to the soul. Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the Boswellia genus. It’s harvested by cutting or scraping the tree bark, which causes the resin to extrude and then harden. These hardened resin lumps are known as Frankincense Tears. Frankincense has been traded as a valued and important aromatic ingredient for over 5,000 years. It’s use and mention is widespread in many cultures and religions. In the Christian Christmas Story (birth of Jesus) one of the 3 Kings/Wise men brought with him the gift of Frankincense. While the first recorded use of Frankincense incense was by the Egyptians as early as 5,000 years ago this was later taken up by the Greeks, Romans and Israelites. In addition, many Asian religions such as Hinduism and Islam use Frankincense as part of their religious ceremonies.
For hundreds of years Nippon Kodo has been producing incense in Japan. Nippon Kodo’s Morning Star Incense is one of the most popular brands of Japanese incense. There is no stick in the middle. Instead, the incense is rolled and held together without an inner stick—this means that there is less smoke, and you don’t get the smell of burning bamboo or wood. The result is a more pure incense smell, that burns cooler and slower. The ingredients of Nippon Kodo incense are high quality and are sourced from around the world, using rare aromatic woods, natural gums, resins and other ingredients used to make their incense.

How to Burn Incense Sticks:.
The incense stick must stand in a fire-proof incense burner, or in an incense bowl or cup packed with rice, sand, or sea salt. You can use any fire proof container including a ceramic cup, metal bowl, or soapstone dish. Light the end of the stick with a match or lighter, Let the flame burn for a few seconds. Gently blow out the flame. You should see a red tip burning on the stick. Smoke will rise and your incense will start to smell. Enjoy. Some people are sensitive to some scents or the smoke that is released, even though it is very minimal. If this happens, just place your holder on a higher shelf.
Caution: Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Make sure ashes fall on fireproof surfaces (ashtrays or incense stick holder). Not for human consumption. **DO NOT PLACE STICK HOLDER/BURNER NEAR FLAMMABLE MATERIAL**
