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.
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.
