Japanese Incense-Morning Star sandalwood


     image

Morning Star sandalwood incense is one of our personal favorites here.  The sandalwood is a woody and dry scent.  This great little 50 stick pack comes with a burner to burn your incenses in.  These 50 stick packs of Morning Star are fun because they don’t cost an arm and a leg ($3.10 at Violet and Company), if you do like them there are enough in the pack to enjoy.  If you don’t like them you can give them to a friend to try and you aren’t out tons of money.  You can buy these through our Facebook Store for an additional 5% off (after liking our page 🙂 ) or you can get them in our eBay store or on our website

Love is the greatest power that we have.  Love comes in many forms: kindness, compassion, understanding, giving someone a second chance, helping a stranger, allowing someone to go first, giving some encouragement, trying to see a situation through eyes of another or just taking time and listening.  Putting love out into the world changes it for the better.

Happy Father’s Day!

Morning Star Lavender Incense on sale!


morning star lavender 50Morning Star Lavender on sale $2.85!

If you have never tried Japanese Incense, now is the time.  Nippon Kodo’s Morning Star Lavender infuses the room with a delicate lavender aroma.  The sticks, like all Morning Star, have no wooden bamboo core, they are pure incense.  Each package of incense comes with a little ceramic incense holder.  The sticks are delicate, perhaps 3 mm thick, but they burn slowly. And if they should break, no matter, they burn at any size!  We like standing 5 or 6 of them up in a little dish full of sand.  It is a visual and olfactory treat!

Beautiful just because


Don’t forget to sing your song today! Light some Ma Laxmi Dhoop incense and get creative, get spontaneous, do what you do best!

Anand Ganesh Incense


Ganesh Special Fluxo IncenseAnand Ganesh Incense is one of our favorites of all time.  It has a sweet, rich, buttery aroma that reminds one of a big buttery maple bar.  It is a fluxo incense and fluxo denotes masala incense, or natural mixture of powders, woods and flowers to create an incense “dough” that is pressed onto a bamboo stick.  Fluxo are sometimes a little more smokey than other incenses, but it is well worth it.  I love looking at the sticks, as no one looks the same.  The incense “dough” is folded around each stick differently, lumpy in some spots and smooth in others.  It is such an organic, earthy looking incense!  Anand Ganesh Special Fluxo, on sale for $1.25 this week at Violet and Company Incense.

Happiness Needs No Reason

In reading a little Osho, I noticed that the one idea he comes back to again and again is that the significance of life, beauty or happiness is that it is significant in itself-it needs no other reason than just that it is!  These things just exist for the beauty of existing, just like we do!  We are here and that is enough.
