Ever wondered how Japan has so many well-preserved palaces, shrines, and temples? There's a good chance that some of these wooden structures were made out of Hinoki!
Native to Central Japan, Hinoki or Japanese Cypress is valued for its fragrance and high-quality timber. Because of its natural resistance to bacteria, fungi, and insects, Hinoki was used to build temples, shrines, and baths in ancient times.
Today, you'll find Hinoki listed as an ingredient in soaps, deodorants, shampoos, and other skin and haircare products. Therapeutically, the oil is used to treat a number of health conditions owing to its natural anti-infectious, anxiolytic, antiviral, antiseptic, antimicrobial, disinfectant, immuniostimulant, insecticidal, and sedative properties. It is especially beneficial in boosting our immune system, clearing stuffy noses and sinus congestions, promoting hair growth, easing symptoms of coughs, colds, bronchitis, and more.
Its aromatic profile can be described as fresh, woodsy, and balsamic with hints of spicy lemon. The scent is calming yet uplifting, relaxing but also energising. Use it when you're dealing with tension, stress, and anxiety!

Caution: Do not use undiluted on the skin. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.
Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
