“Good Fortune” Japanese Ceremonial Incense
“Awake, the mind in focus
Beyond the boundary dreams await
I give thanks for their arrival.”
開運香 means "opening the door to good fortune incense". It's big, bold, and wonderfully aromatic in its pursuit of good fortune. From it's oversized square stick to its deep and earthy fragrance with elements of Vietnamese Aloeswood, Borneol, Camphor, Cassia, Clove, and high quality Sandalwood.
I found this incense a few years ago while researching traditional Japanese incense ceremonies. I was drawn to the 300 year old history. The scent is traditional in nature, and best suited for intentional energy work or reflection with a clear purpose - HOW BETTER TO ATTRACT GOOD FORTUNE?
