Ceremonial Incense Charcoal – 24pcs

Details:

Shoyeido’s ceremonial incense charcoal is an exceptional product crafted for traditional Japanese incense practices such as soradaki, mon-koh, and the incense ceremony Koh-do. This ceremonial charcoal is a blend of woods, predominantly hinoki, designed to add minimal additional scent, ensuring the pure fragrance of your incense is preserved.

This pack contains 24, 1 x 1 x 1/4″ tabs that light easily, do not contain chemical additives and accelerants, and can be used with loose incense, pressed incense, aromatic wood chips, etc.

Key Features:

  • Natural Composition: Unlike standard charcoals that contain chemical additives, Shoyeido’s ceremonial charcoal avoids the use of stinky saltpeter and acrid fuels. This purity is crucial for rituals where the fragrance clarity is paramount, such as in the art of mon-koh and Koh-do.
  • Traditional Practices:
    • Soradaki: This method involves appreciating incense by heating wood chips over charcoal to subtly scent a room. It highlights the wood’s natural aroma without overwhelming the senses.
    • Mon-koh: Known as “listening to incense,” this practice uses the charcoal along with a mica plate to heat rather than burn the incense, allowing practitioners to fully experience the delicate aromas without combustion interference.
    • Koh-do: In the Japanese incense ceremony, Koh-do, the charcoal plays a vital role in ensuring that the true essence of the incense wood, such as agarwood or sandalwood, is enjoyed in its purest form. The charcoal is carefully prepared and maintained to sustain a consistent low heat, which is essential for these sophisticated ceremonies.

Shoyeido’s charcoal is an ideal choice for practitioners seeking a natural and authentic experience in their incense rituals, providing a perfect alternative to chemically treated charcoal. It supports the deep, meditative engagement required for traditional Japanese incense appreciation practices

Are your products all natural?

All Chthonic Star branded items (candles, ritual bath blends, bath bombs, incense) are handmade and crafted from all natural and/or organic ingredients, free from phthalates, petroleum and parabens, fillers, synthetic dyes and chemicals (including fragrances), and are cruelty-free.

We strongly believe in the ethical stewardship and wise use of earthly resources through environmentally responsible and eco-conscious witchcraft. As such, it is important for us to improve the environmental impacts of our operations and our offerings year-to-year while helping others find ways to improve the impacts of their personal practices.

We are not here to Greenwash! Unfortunately, and frustratingly, certain items considered essential to magical practices are either unavailable in eco-conscious varieties or, when they are, become prohibitively expensive to the consumer. We strive to tackle these items one by one, finding individuals and companies who can produce sustainable versions of these products at competitive prices, and become an industry standard for how to start, grow, and/or improve the environmental footprints and handprints of pagan/occult operations and practices.

Nature is sacred and we are here to help her heal however we can!
