WHAT IT IS: 100% undiluted wild-harvested Chamaecyparis obtusa (Hinoki) oil comes from the Japanese Citrus. It is historically a very spiritual oil. Some have also recommended it for rashes and to support healing from Lyme Disease. (See links below for studies.) Considered one of the “Five Sacred Trees of Kiso,” it has been used historically in building palaces, temples, shrines, baths, and traditional noh theaters. Hinoki’s woody aroma has been known to energize and uplift the mind and may help calm and relax during brief periods of agitation.
