The Ambrosial Ofuro Bathing in Tokyo Set
After a long day, you shed your clothes and take a shower to wash away the day’s grime. Open a door and step into a dimly lit room where a hinoki cypress deep-soaking ofuro bath awaits. Here, you take refuge from life’s worries and regain peace of mind. As you fill up the bath, the scent of hinoki is released upon the contact of warm water to wood. Slip into the bath and submerge your body into balmy, enveloping water. With each ambrosial inhale, one by one, life’s cares melt away until you are enveloped in a sense of tranquility.
Ambrosial Ofuro is a blend of botanical oils and extracts that promotes tranquility. This luscious nectar-like fragrance opens with soft notes of euphoric galangal and relaxing hinoki cypress. A touch of ylang ylang calms the mind while tranquil magnolia champaca rests beautifully on serene Siam wood.
The Bathing in Japan sets are a collection of bathing rituals inspired by a memorable journey through Japan. Each set represents a stop on this journey and will take you further and further away from life's busyness and further into nature, Japanese bathing culture, and slow-paced, mindful living.
The first stop on this journey is Tokyo. This vibrant city is the perfect place to transition into Japanese culture after a long flight. Tokyo is bustling yet has an undercurrent of placidity. In the busyness of this energized city, a moment of peaceful serenity can be found in a simple soak at the end of the day at home in an ofuro (bath), at a city sento (bathhouse), or during a day trip to the onsen (hot springs) found scattered about Tokyo’s suburbs.
The Bathing in Tokyo Set is a simple yet immersive two-step ritual that will help you leave your cares behind while you relax at the end of a long day. This set is perfect for minimalist, busy people, city dwellers, and even those who don't have baths as the Shiso Bath and Shower Oil can be used as an in-shower aromatherapy treatment.Set contents:
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.
Step 1: Wash with Aromatic Body Wash. For an aromatic shower experience, place a quarter-sized amount into your palm. Starting at the collarbone, massage into the skin while breathing deeply. Make your way down to the feet and back up again.
If you are using one of our soaks, soak after the wash. If not, move on to step 2.
Step 2: After a bath or shower, while the pores are still open, mist a layer of the Body Misting Essence from the shoulders down to the tops of the feet. For hard to reach areas, mist into your palm and massage into the skin. Always shake well before use to emulsify all the botanical ingredients.
Step 3: Place a small amount of Hikaru Multi-Use Oil in your palms and begin massaging at the collarbone and shoulders and work your way down to the feet.
In addition, this multi-use oil can be used for an aromatic, indulgent pre-shower massage, and has a hair oil to add moisture and shine.
