Scentsual Bitter Pink Ginger is a Japanese incense made by Nippon Kodo. When these incense sticks are burned, they release a lively, uplifting fragrance with a spicy edge.

Bitter Pink Ginger has been chosen as one of the single plant-based fragrances for the Scentsual range as it's commonly eaten in Japan. Young ginger roots tend to be pink and are picked and marinated in sugar and vinegar. The result is a pickled vegetable that's served with sushi and is used as a palate cleansing food. It's a traditional Japanese delicacy and a perfect scent inclusion for this contemporary incense range.

30 Sticks and holder with a burn time of approximately 30 minutes per stick.

Stick Length: Approximately 12cm each

The components are from Japan, and manufactured in Vietnam. 

Scentsual is a contemporary range of Japanese incense produced by the company Nippon Kodo. This range draws inspiration from nature and focuses on providing products with the best single plant-based fragrances found in the natural world.

The two and three-tone modern Scentsual packaging was inspired by the multi-coloured bark found on Rainbow Eucalyptus trees and is well designed, made with recycled paper and reflects the contemporary appeal of the product. This kindness to nature is reflected in the product ingredients too, with 100% natural fragrances and zero colourants.

Scentsual Japanese incense comes in boxes of 30 sticks with a holder provided and are aimed at consumers with an interest in leading natural, eco-enthused lives.

About Nippon Kodo, Japan.

Nippon Kodo's devotion to making fine incense follows a long and honoured tradition that started more than 400 years ago and can be traced back to Juemon Takai, better known as Koju, a skilled artisan in the art and the principal provider of precious rare and exquisite aromas to the Emperor of Japan and his Court.

Many of those pleasing and enduring high-quality incense fragrances, which the company continues to produce to this day, are based on the original formulas created by Koju and later by Yujiro Kito, who was hailed as the genius of fragrance during the Meiji restoration period in the 19th century - around the time that Japan opened its doors to the world and began to modernise itself.

Brought to Japan in the eighth century by Buddhist monks, who used the mystical aromas in their religious ceremonies, "Koh," as incense is called in Japanese, passed into the realm of the aristocracy centuries later as a source of amusement and enlightenment as they "listened to the fragrance" in their parlour games.

It wasn't until the 14th century in the Japan's Muromachi Era that incense reached the height of its popularity with the upper and middle classes of Japanese society, who used it as a mark of distinction and sophistication and to dispel unpleasant odours. It was around this time that samurai warriors began perfuming ; helmets and armour with incense before going into battle as they prepared to meet their fate.

Now, incense promises to become even more acceptable and desirable as a new dimension in gracious living that opens up a whole new world of spiritual awareness and understanding.
