Hibi incense BOX OF 30
After years of trial and error, the Kobe Match Co, the creators of the Hibi Match, arrived at the perfect mixture of paper fibers, incense, and charcoal to create the ideal strike-on-box incense match. Each one of the Hibi matches lasts for about ten minutes bringing delightful fragrances to carry the palm-sized box anywhere, 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 almost 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.
Each purchase comes with a burning pad for safe burning—approximately 10 minutes of burning time. The scent lingers for about 30 minutes or more.
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, hit in a straight line, and wait for the flame to reach the incense stick. Once it does, blow out the fire and place it on your mat.
- If you strike too hard and it breaks or snaps in half, we recommend you to light it with a lighter (if you're able without burning yourself), let it burn and reach the incense stick and place on the mat. Take the other "half" and push it together. The second half should be able to light. This is not common and only will occur if you strike the match too hard. Most users don't have this issue
