Hinoki Essential Oil

Young Living Hinoki OilYoung Living Hinoki essential oil comes from the Japanese cypress, Chamaecyparis obtusa, and is native to central Japan. Hinoki wood has a spicy, lemon scent, is light pinkish-brown in color, and is highly rot and insect resistant. Considered a very high quality timber and one of the “Five Sacred Trees of Kiso,” it has been used historically in building palaces, temples, shrines, baths, and traditional noh theatres. Hinoki’s woody aroma has been known to energize and uplift the mind and may help calm and relax during brief periods of agitation.*
