After a long day, you light a stick of incense, shed your clothes, and take a shower to wash away the day’s grime. Upon opening a door you 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. As you slip into the bath and submerge your body into balmy, enveloping water, the ethereal scent of incense floats in the air. 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 promote tranquility. This luscious incense-meets-nectar 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.
In Japan, bathing is considered a daily wellness practice and is an essential way to quickly transform your mood and transition from the workday into time at home. Though a long bath is always ideal, sometimes all that is needed is a 15-minute soak to help you shift gears and leave the cares of your day behind.
It is this casual manner of the evening bath that inspires The Daily Transformation Soaking Salts. These sumo-size jars of aromatic, luxurious bath salts are a celebration of effortless daily relaxation through Japan's time-honored tradition of the evening soak.
In a base of mineral-rich Pacific and Dead Sea salts, blended with skin-soothing, gently detoxifying wild crafted Japanese arame seaweed and restorative artisan grown Japanese sencha green tea, the focus of the Daily Transformation Soaking Salts is on experiencing calmness and renewal through botanical fragrance provided by some of the world's most exquisite, mood-shifting essential oils and extracts.
As in the tradition of Japanese bathing rituals, shower first. This bath is for pure enjoyment and relaxation. Once the bath is full, pour in two generous handfuls and soak for at least 15 minutes. Shut your eyes, relax, and breathe deeply. Be sure to remain hydrated by drinking water throughout and after the bath.
