n these uncertain times, it’s always heartening to see a whole new venture beginning around here…
Especially one that cares deeply about using only natural and ethically-sourced materials and ingredients.
Step forward Be Kind Incense, based over in sunny Kilcoole, and determined to make the world a happier, sweeter-smelling place.
As they prepare their December 4th launch, here’s the lowdown from founders Kylie and Mark…
Be Kind came about when we set out for salvation in the Wicklow mountain trails through the lockdowns and absolutely fell in love with the mountains. In parallel, we were experiencing an inner and outer spiritual journey, during which time a healthy obsession with incense formed. Out of that grew the brand concept of merging kindness, the Wicklow Mountains and hand-rolled incense.
Be Kind Industries is a celebration of Wicklow, its beautiful surroundings, jaw-dropping scenery and deep-rooted spirituality.

Be Kind have honoured each of Wicklow’s landmark or spiritual site with a hand-rolled incense blend.
Heavenly escapes such as Sugarloaf, Avoca, Lough Ouler, Lough Tay, Magheramore, Hollywood, Vartry, Djouce Woods, St Kevin’s Way, Wicklow’s Way and Glendalough – right in your home.
After a successful soft launch over the last few months, Be Kind Industries are set to hold their official launch event, on Sunday, December 4th, at The Russborough Room at The Avon, Blessington.
The Avon, Blessington
The Be Kind Experience – a nourishing day for the mind, body and soul.
Alongside a host of guest speakers, sound baths, breath workshops, meditations, food, great connections and good vibes, Be Kind will also be releasing their new limited edition gift sets along with their new eco-conscious packaging.
Be Kind Industries launched their hand-rolled luxury incense brand only a few months ago and are already serving the American, Canadian, Australian and European markets. Nationally they are exploding, popping up in more and more retail spaces daily. Through it all, Be Kind’s mantra has always been self love and self care.
What is luxury hand-rolled temple grade incense?
Each step of the process is done by hand, each ingredient is hand-harvested, dried and hand-ground to a powder, oil or resin. All components are carefully hand-rolled with attention and love, using only natural ingredients. There are no chemicals or machines used in the process.
The process is long and time-consuming, done with great craft and care.
Batches are limited. These traditional and ancestral recipes have been handed down through the generations. The devoted makers have been donating portions of incense to the temples of Mysore, India for over 200 years.
Hand-rolled incense doesn’t just smell amazing and provide an ambient aroma, it is also used to journey in meditation, calm the mind, generate present moment awareness, in yoga practice, spiritual practise, in many therapy settings and across multiple disciplines.
This incense brings a room to life.
Plus, many of the ingredients provide relief for numerous ailments such as anxiety, stress, sleep, focus, clarity, pain relief, and even acts as aphrodisiac!
Endless love and energy has been poured into this brand and the fragrances speak for themselves.
The truth is in the experience!
