Hinoki essential oil comes from the Japanese cypress, Chamaecyparis obtusa, and is native to central Japan. Hinoki wood has a spicy, lemon scent, is light pinkish-brown in color, and is highly rot resistant.
Hinoki is considered a very high quality timber and one of the “Five Sacred Trees of Kiso,” it has been used historically in building palaces, temples, shrines, baths, and traditional noh theatres. Hinoki’s woody aroma has been known to energize and uplift the mind and may help calm and relax during brief periods of agitation.*
What is Hinoki?
Hinoki is known for its beautiful light-colored wood, rich straight grain, relaxing aroma and the therapeutic properties of its wood oils. Throughout Asia, Hinoki has been the preferred material in the construction of palaces, temples, sacred shrines, and baths. It is Japan’s most prized softwood and the material from which the late
Emperor’s casket and funeral shrine were made.
