Experience: Calming of the mind and body, a sense of peace, ceasing of mental chatter, relief from stress, peaceful restorative sleep.
The Fragrance: Inspired by a blissful evening soak in one of Gion's traditional Japanese inns. Japanese yuzu citrus relieves stress and will help you relax. Green, yellow mandarin and wild lavender will help calm the mind while exotic ylang ylang oil evokes the mystery of the night while bringing about a peaceful sleep. In addition to our Dreams of Gion essential oil fragrance, this soak contains luscious ylang ylang hydrosol, an exotically fragrant aromatic water which calms the mind and brings positivity.
The Product: A truly magical synergy, this is a soak to savor and enjoy. Based on the Japanese bathing ritual of bathing in sake, this is not just a bath, but is the ultimate luxurious at-home spa treatment for unparalleled relaxation. Each single-use bottle contains a 100% natural base of pure sake and aromatic hydrosol. Hydrosols are a fragrant product of steam distilling specific flowers and plants. Not only do they add a luscious fragrant depth to the bath, but each one possesses its own unique aromatherapy properties that work on a subtle energetic level. Green tea botanical extract provides anti-aging benefits while a touch of organic shiso seed oil, organic camellia oil and rice bran oil add a sheer veil of moisture to the skin.
The Ritual: As in the tradition of Japanese bathing rituals, shower first. The soak is purely for enjoyment and relaxation. When the tub is full, gently shake one bottle of Aromatic Sake Soak and slowly pour the entire contents into the tub. We suggesting soaking for 30 minutes. When exiting the tub, get up slowly. Pat skin dry (don’t rub). Your skin will be lightly moisturized and dewy. Be sure to stay hydrated while soaking and drink a full glass of water upon exiting the bath.
