Dao of Incense is the ancient art of appreciating incense and a way to enjoy scents to relax and sooth anxiety, and to calm down mind and body deeply and thoroughly. Incense has been highly regarded and used and for medicinal and purification purposes for thousands of years and across many cultures and religions.

My 14 year old daughter and I loved this class. The process was very relaxing and Christina is a wonderful, generous facilitator. It definitely inspired us to make more incense at home. Thank you Christina. Zoe & Daisy

Amazing women teaching the art of make incense. Have to say as I found it quite interesting that she learned it in Taiwan with a family who have doing it for generations as well as she knows not just how to make it, also about Agarwood itself and its benefits and another fields related to nature and Chinese medicine.
I felt quite comfortable, calm and connected in this class.
