Yusuzumi is Japanese for the evening cool or enjoying the cool of the evening after a hot summer’s day.
Japan's summers are notoriously stifling. During the evenings, the air cools down a bit and people relax while enjoying a reprieve from the sun and humidity. In rural Japan, one usually relaxes in a garden or on a veranda at the end of the day. Often, this is done wearing casual cotton kimono, or yukata, with a glass of iced barley tea in hand. Enveloped in a sense of serenity, one hopes to catch a soft summer breeze that hints of flowers, while listening to wind chimes that ring softly in the background.
Allow Yusuzumi to be your calming and refreshing end-cap to a long summer day. An exotic, feminine fragrance, Yusuzumi captures the scent of an evening garden breeze. Sweet orange, lemongrass, ylang ylang, jasmine, and spearmint cool and calm the body and mind and are also a restorative treatment for summertime skin.
This summer, let your soul and senses be swept away to Japan and experience the cooling beauty of Yusuzumi.
Instantly feel a difference in your mood while you wrap yourself in an aromatic, skin-nurturing mist.
Body Misting Essence will envelop your skin in some of Japan’s most time-honored ingredients: skin-softening sake, restorative sencha green tea, soothing antioxidant-rich gobo (burdock) root, healing yomogi (Japanese mugwort), and nourishing wakame sea kelp. Aloe vera also heals and calms the skin while adding sheer, weightless hydration.
Body Misting Essence can also be used as bookends to any self-care ritual. A few mists on the shoulders and a deep inhale before a shower, bath, or even meditation, is the perfect way to step out of the day-to-day and evoke a sense of calm and tranquility.
Always shake well before use to emulsify all the botanical ingredients. After a bath or shower, while the pores are still open, apply a layer of mist from the shoulders down to the tops of the feet. For hard to reach areas, mist into your palm and massage into the skin. This simple step will flush the skin’s pathways with nutrients in preparation for our nourishing Hikaru Multi-Use Oil.
