After years of trial and error, the Kobe Match Co, the creators of the Hibi Match, arrived at the perfect mixture of paper fibres, incense and charcoal to create the perfect strike-on-box incense match. Each one of the Hibi matches last for about ten minutes bringing delightful fragrances to anywhere you bring the palm-sized box, allowing short aromatherapy sessions for the busy individual. The Harima region of Awaji island has been producing matches and incense for nearly one hundred and fifty years and the island accounts for nearly 70% of the match production in Japan. The westerly winds through Awaji island create the perfect temperature to dry incense; each of the fragrances derives from herbs grown by a local incense producer using traditional methods.
Box of 8 or 30 incense sticks. Each purchase comes with a burning pad for safe burning. Scent lingers for about 30 minutes or more.
Care Instructions: Do not strike as if you're lighting a regular match. Incense matches are delicate. Hold the match close to the tip and, without burning yourself, strike in a straight line and wait for the flame to reach the incense stick. Once it does, blow out the flame and place it on your mat.
