Over 1400 years ago, a piece of unusually fragrance driftwood washed ashore on the tiny island of Awaji.  Island locals, realizing its unique properties, presented the log to the Empress Suiko. An era of appreciation of scent began.

 

At Glow, we appreciate the benefits of incense on the Shen or Spirit. It has calming, uplifting and a powerful space clearing effects. It’s perfect as daily ritual and a moment to reflect.

 

The Ten Virtues of Koh were compiled in the 16th century and continue to capture the spirit of incense appreciation.

 

Ten virtues of Incense:

  • It refreshes the mind and body
  • It removes impurity
  • It brings alertness
  • It is a companion in solitude
  • In the midst of busy affairs it offers a moment of peace
  • It enhances the meditative environment
  • When it is plentiful one never tires of it
  • When there is little one is still satisfied
  • Age does not change it’s efficacy
  • Used everyday it does no harm

We also carry a lovely selection of burners and bowls!

These powerful oils penetrate through the skin directly into your system to heal and regulate. Gentle and pleasant in their effects they also have a profound effect on the mind and spirit. If you are using aromatherapy for fertility it should be done in the first half of your cycle until day 14 ovulation. If you do not ovulate it can be done until the cycle becomes regular.

All of our oils are therapeutic grade and tested for purity. We use Snow Lotus brand which is not a mutli-level marketing company. From Snow Lotus “ we sell products harvested from small producers worldwide who ethically wild harvest or sustainably cultivate the plants and distill the oils in small batches. As a result of working directly with artisan – and not commercial – producers, quality is never compromised – the oils remain genuine, authentic and as unadulterated as when they were first distilled.” Most Snow Lotus oils are certified organic by trusted agencies (Ecocert, Ceres, Qualite-France, etc.) in their country of origin, as well as certified NOP organic by the USDA. We love the Bergamont for the delightful orange smell.  It is perfect for promoting relaxation and aiding digestion.
