Derived from the wood of the precious Japanese Hinoki tree, Hinoki essential oil has a beautiful rich and earthy aroma.
Frequently used in personal care products, Hinoki esential oil diluted in carrier oil can be incorporated into a relaxing massage. The woody, balsamic scent of Hinoki oil can help create a calm environment when diffused. This aroma makes Hinoki oil popular for use in perfumes, and the Japanese commonly use it in baths.
For centuries, the wood of the Hinoki tree has been used to build shrines and temples across Japan and is still used today in the timber industry.
While Hinoki is a prized resource, its wood has been over-populating areas of Japan for years. dōTERRA has partnered with groups in Japan to use the timber industry’s by-product of Hinoki wood to create this beautiful essential oil.
