|Hibi Incense Matches - Japanese Cypress
Box of 8 incense sticks. Each purchase comes with a burning pad for safe burning. Approximately 10 minutes of burning time. Scent lingers for about 30 minutes or more.
The Kobe Match Co arrived at a mixture of paper fibers, incense and charcoal to create the perfect strike-on-box incense match. The Harima region of Awaji has been producing matches and incense for nearly one hundred and fifty years.
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. 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.
