Body Incense at The Scented Djinn's Etsy Apothecary ~ February 2015

Body incense isn't something new to the world. It is believed to have originated in India a few thousand years ago, and progressed from there to other parts of Asia, China and Japan in particular. Body incense in Japan is a traditional form of perfume as liquid perfumes were rare there. Japanese body incense is called zukoh and is primarily made up of just a handful of aromatics, which include cinnamon, clove, camphor, and sometimes star anise, all finely ground to powder. Body incense is used by pouring a small amount into the palm of one hand and rubbing the hands together while cupping the incense, then the incense is spread through the hair, arms, neck, on the earlobes, or wherever, simply by rubbing it on. Body incense works with a person's perspiration to create a unique scent profile, and it is also often used as a natural deodorant with some people rubbing their incensed hands under their arms.

Our incense is created using the finest aromatics we can get our hands on, and then finely ground into a base of Hawaiian sandalwood. Thus far we've created one finished body incense and have two in the wings waiting to be completed. 2015 is the year of sacred scenting at The Scented Djinn.
