The virtues of Koh (incense)

The virtues of Koh

*koh = incense

It brings communication with the transcendent.
It refreshes mind and body.
It removes impunity.
It brings alertness.
It is a companion in solitude.
In the midst of busy affairs, it brings a moment of peace.
When it is plentiful, one never tires of it.
When there is little, still one is satisfied.
Age does not change its efficacy.
Used everyday, it does no harm.

— A poem from the sixteenth century —

Shoyeido has continues to capture the spirit of Koh (incense) appreciation for 300 years. The master blenders at Shoyeido have been perfecting the art of blending of high-quality natural ingredients into the finest incense in the world. The incense enhances the quality of life, and brings a moment of relaxation to the everyday affairs.
