About a month ago I decided to start an in depth aromatherapist certification course. I love essential oils and they are Amayori's foundation. My desire is to learn about these oils on a more scientific level.
In that time I have been spending more time with oils in their raw form. The Home Essence is almost always diffusing in my home or studio starting with my morning meditation with Rotenburo Air and ending with Hinoki Onsen after dinner.
The Home Essences are an abstract version of the fragrances used in Amayori’s bath and body care products. Some of the more refined notes are omitted but the blends capture the spirit and vitality of the fragrances and celebrate their physical and emotional therapeutic value.
Imagine a day that begins with diffusing Rotenburo Air as you wake up and enjoy your morning coffee or tea. The calm continues with Ambrosial Ofuro on the Tokoname diffuser or on a small dish of salt placed on your desk. Then, wind down at night while diffusing Hinoki Onsen and leave the cares of your day behind.
Try using these throughout your day. I truly believe that diffusing oils makes for a better quality of life. With each one, take note of how you feel, how your mood shifts, and where it resonates within your body.

Ambrosial Ofuro: Inspired by Japan's hinoki ofuro baths, Ambrosial Ofuro is a blend of botanical oils and extracts that promote tranquility. This luscious incense-meets-nectar gender-neutral 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.
Hinoki Onsen: Inspired by Japan's hinoki hot springs baths, Hinoki Onsen is an otherworldly gender-neutral 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.
Rotenburo Air: Inspired by Japan's open-air hot springs, Rotenburo Air is a fragrance for rejuvenation. Japanese yuzu citrus relaxes and brings positivity to the body and mind while wild orange replenishes, revives, and uplifts. A refreshing mix of conifers such as organic white pine and organic balsam fir refresh and revitalize. A touch of monarda flower relieves stress while the finest white frankincense from Oman reduces tension and encourages deep breathing.

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 12-15 drops into your aromatherapy diffuser and enjoy. To bring fragrance to intimate spaces, add 5 drops of Home Essence to our Tokoname Stone Diffuser- this is a wonderful way to scent bathrooms and guestrooms.
