Incense has been used in Japan for over a thousand years to purify and relax the body and mind. Traditional Japanese incense uses powdered tabu(camphor tree) as a base mixed with sandalwood or aloeswood, two major fragrant woods. Spices and other natural materials are then added for additional aroma.
