Shoyeido Jewel Incense
Shoyeido created the Jewel Series to evoke the spirits of five precious stones, each a symbol of humanity’s greatest inner qualities: Diamond, for power. Ruby, for strength. Emerald, for awareness. Sapphire, for devotion. Amethyst, for balance. Each fragrance is blended from only the finest aromatic woods, herbs, roots, resins and spices.

Shoyeido's blending process is an art form. Highly trained "masters" draw upon centuries-old secrets to create masterworks of fragrance. These artisans carefully process the quality, balance, and ratio of every hand-selected natural ingredient. The slightest variation in amount or quality of any component can dramatically influence the outcome. Only the finest raw materials are used. The results are remarkable, subtle scents that beckon us to use all of our senses — what the Japanese call mon-koh, or "listening to incense."
These unique blends are the modern natural solution for creating a relaxed atmosphere in the home. Whether as an accompaniment to work, to enliven social settings, to deepen yoga and meditation practices, or simply as bubble bath or spa accompaniment, Shoyeido’s pure incense is a timeless way to enhance atmosphere.
Clean and Green
With respect for the environment and a concern for green practices, Shoyeido continues to set the standard in the market of fragrance. They have procured permits from the Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry in Japan, and the US Fish & Wildlife Department to validate that their products are properly accounted for and responsibly harvested. None of the recipes contain animal ingredients and no testing has ever been done on animals.
Where is the Stick?
Unlike many incense, Shoyeido's blending techniques do not require a bamboo core. With Shoyeido, the fragrance you enjoy is that of pure incense rather than the smoke of a superfluous wooden base. Shoyeido blends only the finest natural ingredients and binds them with Tabu-koh (machilus thunbergii) and water. This mixture is then extruded, much like spaghetti, and allowed to dry as a solid stick of pure incense.
