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 anti-fungal 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.
