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.
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.
