Kiso-hinoki cypress from Japan offers you a unique opportunity to experience a tree once reserved for spiritual ceremonies.
Grown only in the Kiso area of Nagano Prefecture of Japan for over 300 years, only a select few are allowed into this forest to harvest wood and leaves.
Called Phytoncides; more than 5,000 volatile substances defend forest plants from bacteria, fungi and insects. Hinoki abundantly produces Phytoncides that not only smell wonderful but have been clinically proven to prevent growth of the attacking organism. A little goes a long way!
Place 2-3 drops in foot bath or diffuser, 5-10 drops in a bath. Diffusing Hinoki will disinfect the air and calm your body. Use one drop on toothpaste to disinfect teeth and gums but do not swallow.
