Be Kind

Be Kind’s journey began when they set out for salvation in the Wicklow Mountain trails throughout the lockdowns. They reacquainted ourselves with Wicklow’s stunning surroundings and fell in love with all the natural beauty on offer. They found peace, serenity and joy while connecting with Wicklow’s deep rooted spirituality, exploring the many trails and historical sites & landmarks.
 

In parallel, they were on an inner and outer spiritual journey, their obsession with incense was becoming problematic, they stumbled across some natural hand rolled blends from India and made it their mission to source the most natural and ethical products available. Over time they developed a strong connection to the source, communities devoted to supplying Temples of India for over 200 years, each stick made with intention & love.

From there stemmed the birth child of Be Kind Industries merging all of their passions of Wicklow, Incense, Meditation, Yoga, Spiritual Practice, Hiking & Community, They have honoured each of the above within our brand concept with Kindness at the core. Be Kind Incense is completely chemical free, made from the purest ingredients, these magical fragrances speak for themselves – The Truth is in the Experience.
