For a few weeks now I have had the dream of creating daily YouTube content around incense and positive thoughts. So I created Incense For Breakfast where we can take a little time in the morning, think about our lives and set powerful and positive intentions for the day while we talk about incense. Hopefully you will light an incense too. ☺
The first episode reviews Golden Buddha by Vijayshree Fragrance. If you click on the picture above it will take you to our YouTube channel. Or you can click here. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it and playing with the Golden Buddha incense. You can find the incense at violetandcompany.com
We have sold so many of these lately! Mysore Sandal soap, 150 gram size, made with pure sandalwood oil. It really beautifies the skin and makes one smell divine. Only $3.00 at Violet and Company Incense.
Sandalwood. It is a basic scent that most people know, even if they can’t put their finger on the exact scent. Sandalwood is in many things from incense, to cosmetics to perfume. Sandalwood inspires unity with the Divine, imposes a masculinity, blends well with other scents such as Patchouli or Rose and is a base scent for many incenses. It provides a solid wood base note that many other scents can climb up and ring off of. Many things can be said about sandalwood and it is a favorite scent here at Violet and Company.
Sandalwood is a type of tree from the genus Santalum. Popular sandalwood trees are Indian sandalwood and Australian sandalwood. Sandalwood is called Chandan in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Precious Chandan by HEM is a wonderful Indian sandalwood fragrance-very sweet. You can find it at Violet and Company by clicking on the link above. Sandalwood is known as Koh in Japanese. Mainichikoh is a favorite sandalwood incense by Nippon Kodo-very woody and spicy. Mainichikoh is a beautiful Japanese incense; the fragrance is perfectly placed with authentic oils and woods used to really capture the woody, hearty aroma of sandalwood.

Sandalwood plays large parts in the great religions of the world. Buddhism and Hinduism use sandalwood extensively. Neo-pagans also use sandalwood in rituals and meditation. Sandalwood resins are rubbed on the skin to scent the body or burnt on charcoal as a pure form of sandalwood incense. Sandalwood oil is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat mental health issues and by others to beautify skin. As always, if the oil is to be used, it should only be advised and controlled by someone educated in the uses of essential oils, as essential oils are potent distillations of plant matter and are very concentrated.
Violet and Company has the sandalwood for you-whether it is Mainichikoh, Yoga Sandalwood, Precious Chandan, Sandalwood resins, Suvarna Dhara or Mysore Sandalwood. If you don’t find what you want on the website, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find what you want.
