After a long day, you light a stick of incense, shed your clothes, and take a shower to wash away the day’s grime. Upon opening a door you step into a dimly lit room where a hinoki cypress deep-soaking ofuro bath awaits. Here, you take refuge from life’s worries and regain peace of mind. As you fill up the bath, the scent of hinoki is released upon the contact of warm water to wood. As you slip into the bath and submerge your body into balmy, enveloping water, the ethereal scent of incense floats in the air. With each ambrosial inhale, one by one, life’s cares melt away until you are enveloped in a sense of tranquility.
Ambrosial Ofuro is a blend of botanical oils and extracts that promote tranquility. This luscious incense-meets-nectar fragrance opens with soft, warm notes of relaxing hinoki cypress, hiba wood, and sandalwood. A touch of ylang ylang calms the mind while entrancing magnolia champaca and galangal add a hint of the exotic. A subtle note of vanilla brings comfort and ease.
The Aromatic Body Wash will transform your shower into a fragrant, mood-shifting escape for the senses. This all-natural, non-drying wash features exquisite essential oils from around the world, detoxifying wild-harvested seaweed extract, skin-softening organic virgin coconut crème, and antioxidant-rich organic sea buckthorn CO2 extract.
In Japan, bathing is done in two phases. The first step is to cleanse the body before proceeding into the bathtub to soak. Soaking and relaxing in the bath is just that - pure enjoyment. We suggest showering with Aromatic Body Wash before using any of our bath products, choosing a wash and soak from the same fragrance collection. This ritual will create an immersive, aromatic experience that will deepen the soul-soothing effects of your soak.
Pour a quarter-sized amount into your palm or onto any of our Japanese washing towels and smooth over your skin for a minute or more. As you do this, shut your eyes and envision all of your cares and worries being washed away.
