Derived from the wood of the Japanese Hinoki tree, Hinoki essential oil is soothing to the skin, calming to the mind and has a relaxing aroma.
doTERRA Hinoki is a gentle oil when used on the skin, making it a good alternative for individuals who are sensitive to other evergreen trees. Its main chemical constituents are alpha-Pinene and delta-cadinene. The relaxing and soothing aromas make Hinoki ideal for skincare or massages. In Japan, the oil is used in baths for relaxation. The wood has been used for centuries to build shrines and temples and is still used today in the timber industry. Our sustainable sourcing practices, in conjunction with Japan’s forest management programmes, are helping to control the overpopulation of Hinoki trees. doTERRA utilises by-product from the timber industry, ensuring that no part of the tree goes to waste. The process also helps to create more jobs in rural areas. This unique, premium oil continues to give back to the people of its native land and can now be a part of your oil collection. Works well with: Frankincense, Bergamot and Lemon
