HINOKI | Pure Essential Oil

Hinoki, Chamaecyparis obtusa (Japanese cypress), is a species of cypress native to central Japan. Hinoki wood is used for building temples and shrines, and as a traditional Japanese stick incense for its light, earthy aroma.

The oil is pale yellow to brown and thin. It has a dry, woody, camphoraceous odour with light terpenic nuances and soft herbal/lemony overtones, with a peculiar warm-sweet, somewhat spicy undertone.

It is traditionally used to increase parasympathetic activity and reduce stress and anxiety, for its anti-bacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, and as a decongestant. It is also used in purification rituals.

It blends well with rosewood, bergamot, cypress, cassia, jasmine, juniper, neroli, labdanum, clary sage, vetiver, rosemary and ylang ylang.
