Our wild Red Hinoki Essential Oil, also known as Benihi and Hong Kuai, is one of our oils most rich in sesquiterpenes. The high sesquiterpenes bestow our Red Hinoki Oil with a rich heady aroma that lasts all day and supports calmness, good breathing and overall health. Inhaling the Hinoki oil is also reputed to boost confidence and endurance. The deep, pleasing woody aroma of Red Hinoki and its incredible tenacity also make it a wonderful fixative for cologne or perfume.
Red Hinoki Essential Oil is a fantastic, long lasting aroma in soaps, candles, incense, natural cosmetics and more. Red Hinoki is a treasured cypress tree that grows high in the rainforest in Taiwan. This variety of cypress grows to be thousands of years old. Our wild Red Hinoki Essential Oil is produced using sustainable methods. The trees aren't cut by man, the limbs are naturally harvested by annual monsoon rains and floods washing them down the mountain!
