The Snow Onsen Hot Springs Retreat Set

$ 130.00

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. 

Take an aromatic journey to Japan and allow The Snow Onsen to transport you to a hillside open-air bath among the softly falling snow. 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 and tangerine provide a cheerful citrus note that brightens even the coldest winter. Lush French geranium bourbon adds a touch of femininity and mystery.

An escape to a hot spring town is one of Japan’s beloved pleasures. Rich with culture, the emphasis of a hot springs vacation is on taking the waters, whether it be a relaxing soak in an onsen bath, or a casual foot soak in an ashiyu. Enjoying local color through food, sightseeing, and shopping is also part of the fun. Each hot spring town is unique and boasts its own local specialties. 

The Hot Springs Retreat Set is a curation of three products designed to bring you the experience of a vacation in one of Japan’s remote hot spring towns through two immersive rituals: a full-body soak and a languorous foot soak. Both of these can be preceded with a shower using the accompanying Aromatic Body Wash. A wash before a soak is traditional in Japanese bathing culture. This simple step will make for a more enveloping, authentic experience.

Each set is  beautifully presented in a heavy-weight gift box that is wrapped in kozo paper with katazome-shi stenciling. This beautiful stenciling is based on traditional kimono printing techniques. The pattern chosen for this season depicts a journey through Japan's mountains. For an authentic finishing touch, each set is tied with a delicate gold mizuhiki cord.

Step 2: Pour one pouch of your chosen Hot Spring Soak into the bath and linger for 30 minutes.

The Foot Soak

Step 1: Shower using the Aromatic Body Wash. Take your time to breathe deeply and wash away your cares. This is optional but is a lovely way to wind down. 

Step 2: Fill a large basin or foot bath with water of your desired temperature. Add one handful of mineral salts into the water. Soak your feet for as long as desired. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of this traditional Japanese wellness practice. Keep a small towel nearby to dry your feet when finished.
