Hinoki essential oil comes from the Japanese cypress, Chamaecyparis obtusa, and is native to central Japan. Hinoki is 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 oil has a scent that is uniquely Japanese. The wood is lemon scented, light pinkish-brown in colour, and highly rot and insect resistant. Highly valued by the Japanese, hinoki forests have been managed and protected since the times of the feudal lords and samurai. Today it is a popular ornamental tree in parks and gardens.
