The ongoing pandemic has kept many in their homes, giving us an opportunity to slow down and reflect. As the burning of incense has long been used as a method to promote relaxation and create a sense of calmness, Nelson Chow has designed an incense holder, available in 4 different colours, each emblematic of different emotions.

Charcoal black represents strength, power, and resolution; to keep one grounded and empower them to navigate through troubled times.

Cream white represents light, purity and goodness; to cleanse one’s mind and to let go. 

Moss green is balance, harmony and renewal; to renew and restore depleted energy.

Soft yellow is happiness, clarity and joy; to strengthen positive energy and encourage optimism.
