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 perfect strike-on-box incense match. Each one of the Hibi matches last for about ten minutes bringing delightful fragrances to anywhere you bring the palm-sized box, allowing short aromatherapy sessions for the busy individual.
The Harima region of Awaji has been producing matches and incense for nearly one hundred and fifty years. The westerly winds through Awaji island create the perfect temperature to dry incense, and each of the fragrances derives from herbs grown by a local incense producer using traditional methods.
Incense matches are delicate and should be lit more gently than a standard match. Hold the match close to the tip and carefully strike in a straight line and wait for the flame to reach the incense stick. A lighter can also be used. Once lit, blow out the flame and place it on the burning pad provided.
Each match lasts about ten minutes.
