Derived from the wood of the Japanese Hinoki tree, this essential oil provides a myriad of uses. Hinoki is often used in skincare as it is well known to soothe the skin as it is a gentle oil. This oil is often used as an alternative for individuals who are sensitive to other evergreen trees.
As well as this, Hinoki has a grounding aroma, often described as fresh, woody and balsamic. This oil is ideal for diffusion in your home to create a tranquil and relaxed environment. It is also used as a massage oil or added to a bath given its soothing properties.
In Japan, Hinoki tree is valued for its historical significance. The wood is incredibly durable and can last for thousands of years in well-built structures. On example is the pagoda at Horyuji Temple in Nara, Japan. It was built around 600 AD and is still intact today.
