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.
Experience the otherworldly serenity of the Japanese bath while enveloping your skin in weightless hydration and transporting your soul through botanical fragrance.
Shiso Bath and Shower Oil is a lightweight, fragrant nectar in a base of shiso seed and organic coconut oils. This oil can be used in two ways: as a nurturing soak or as a highly aromatic, skin-nourishing in-shower massage oil.
After a soak or shower, you’ll emerge with skin that glows in a veil of nourishing moisture. Shiso Bath and Shower Oil is hydrating while feeling neither heavy nor greasy. A small amount provides the perfect balance of hydration for the skin.
Pause, shut your eyes, and take a slow, deep breath. Read the story of the fragrance that is on the slip of rice paper tucked inside each box. Allow your soul and senses to be immersed in this experience.
For the Bath:As in the tradition of Japanese bathing rituals, shower first. This bath is for pure enjoyment and relaxation. Once the bath is full, pour onecapful of Shiso Bath Oil into the tub. Swirl with your hand to distribute evenly and then slide into the bath. Try to soak for at least twenty minutes.When you exit the bath, pat skin dry – don’t rub. Be sure to drink a full glass of water after the bath. This is a soak for all seasons. Use warmer water during cooler months and lukewarm water during the warmer months.
For the Shower:After washing with the coordinating Aromatic Body Wash, step out of the water and apply a small amount of Shiso Bath and Shower Oil to your palms. Take a moment to cup your palms over your nose and breathe deeply. Begin by massaging the shoulders and collarbone and make your way over the rest of your body adding more oil to your palms as needed. Allow the oil to penetrate the skin for at least a minute. Take one final rinse with water before exiting the shower. Pat the skin dry.
