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.
15 oz (10+ soaks per jar)
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 salts, blended with skin-soothing, gently detoxifying Japanese arame seaweed and restorative 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. As this is a summer soak, we suggest using warm to tepid water for a relaxing, cooling bath. 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.
