Step into a bathhouse with soaring ceilings and a majestic hinoki cypress onsen bath. The lighting is dim, the air is balmy, and the scent of hinoki, rich and heady, evokes instant relaxation. As you slip into the bath, the first thing you notice is the smoothness of the wood, worn to a satin finish from years of contact with mineral-rich hot spring water. After submerging your entire body, you take note of the warm water that envelops your skin. With each fragrant inhale, you relax deeper and deeper. With each exhale, the tension in your body and mind slips away.
Hinoki Onsen is an otherworldly unisex fragrance for deep, meditative relaxation. Hinoki essential oil relaxes while geranium calms the mind and body. Refreshing, exotic jasmine sambac and red mandarin will elevate your mood and soothe your spirit, while vetiver grounds and stabilizes.
Shizumi is a Japanese name that means calm, quiet water. The Shizumi Luxury Bath Salts capture the transcendent moment of tranquility that is the Japanese bath – a serene place and time to reconnect with yourself, regain balance, and wash away the cares of the day.
These incredible salts are the most complete form of self-care and well-being that we offer.
Each 12-ounce jar of Shizumi Luxury Bath Salts provides three all-encompassing full body treatments containing exquisite aromatherapy fragrance, a synergy of salts including mineral-rich sea salt harvested off the coast of the Ishigaki Island of Okinawa, and some of Japan’s most incredible artisan grown and gathered time-honored botanicals: antioxidant-rich matcha green tea, healing yomogi (Japanese mugwort), nourishing mekabu seaweed, and detoxifying, mineral-rich Hokkaido kombu seaweed.
A soak in these intensive salts is the perfect weekly full body treatment. Your skin will be nourished, your body detoxified, your muscles relaxed, and your mind and soul soothed.
Pause, shut your eyes, and take a deep breath. Read the story of the fragrance that is on the slip of rice paper tucked inside each box.
As in the tradition of Japanese bathing rituals, shower first. This bath is for pure enjoyment and relaxation. Once the bath is full, pour in 1/3 of the jar and soak for at least 30 minutes. Shut your eyes, relax, and breathe deeply. Since this soak is extremely detoxifying, rinse off with lukewarm water before exiting the tub. Be sure to remain hydrated by drinking water throughout and after the bath.
