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.
Inspired by the Japanese art of appreciating fragrance, or kodo (the way of incense), the Home Essences provide a fragrant, smoke-free alternative for the mindful, aromatic art of incense appreciation while utilizing the mood-enhancing benefits of pure essential oil fragrance.
Each Home Essence is an abstract version of its respective core fragrance from the Amayori collection. Comprised of rare and exotic essential oils from around the world, these can be used with any essential oil diffuser. Sit quietly and enjoy your favorite Home Essence as a way to relax, rejuvenate, or to simply take a break from a busy day. It is also perfect as a bath-side or spa accompaniment, for the office, or to deepen yoga and meditation sessions.
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.
Place 10-12 drops into your aromatherapy diffuser and enjoy. To bring fragrance to small spaces, add 12-15 drops to a small bowl of salt - this is a wonderful way to scent bathrooms and guestrooms.
