The Ume brand was founded by Emma Leafe after several influential journeys – visiting temples, sacred places, and exquisite tea houses, across the alluring provinces of China. The quality incense is blended using only natural, high grade, fragrant plant material and is inspired by ancient recipes. The raw ingredients of their traditional incense consist of precious medicinal plants, herbs, spices, aromatic tree barks, seeds and saps, they are imbued with thousands of years of development.
Ume's herbs and spices are sourced from all over the Asian continent, from the countries of South East Asia and Indonesia to Korea, China and Tibet, and the exact composition of these fragrant masterpieces, often take years to achieve. It is this love and passion they have, and look for, in the producers they collaborate with. Their clientele also insists on finest quality ethical products and such integrity is of foremost importance to them when sourcing their materials. In Buddhist and folk rituals, incense is used in prayer and to make dedicated offerings in ancestor worship. Ume represents an opportunity to explore such ancient practices, moulding them into a contemporary context.
