In Japanese bathing culture, the height of the winter bath experience is a soak in an open air onsen (hot spring) bath amid beautiful falling snow and lush forest trees. The sensation of the heat from the mineral-rich water and the cooling sensation of the snow create a surreal, otherworldly sense of tranquility. Many onsen are made from Japanese hinoki cypress. This makes the experience even more relaxing with hinoki's mystical, woody aroma. The scent of hinoki wood blends beautifully with the crisp snow air and aromatic forest trees.
Take your soul on a journey to Japan and allow The Snow Onsen to transport you to a hillside open-air bath among the softly falling snow while you experience inner peace, tranquility, calm, stillness, and a quiet mind.
Aromatic Siberian fir captures the scent of crisp winter air and brings a sense of stillness and inner peace. Organic white pine brings the scent of lush forest evergreens while it calms and expands the mind. Exotic hinoki cypress oil recreates the scent of the Japanese bath and helps promote deep relaxation. Wild orange, tangerine, and Japanese yuzu provide a cheerful citrus note that brightens even the coldest winter. Geranium balances the emotions and evokes a sense of wellbeing.
Hikaru means "radiance" or "light." Made with Japanese camellia oil that has been grown in the volcanic soil of Sakurajima, shiso seed, sea buckthorn, and rice bran oils, Hikaru Multi-Use Oil is a medium-lightweight, antioxidant-rich, aromatic treatment for the body and senses that will leave you glowing. Smooth these luscious oils over your skin after a bath or shower and envelop yourself in a fragrant, silken cocoon. Or, slide over the ends of your hair to add moisture and shine.
*Please note: this oil is intended for the body and hair, not for the face.
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.
