Hinoki Essential Oil comes from the Hinoki cypress tree, Chamaecyparis formosensis, known as the Hinoki. The essential oil is distilled from the tree’s pinkish-brown wood and retains the woodsy, slightly citrusy aroma. Oil benefits include its light, naturally occurring constituent alpha-pinene, making it a great addition to your essential oil collection. Hinoki essential oil has been used historically to refresh the soul. Today, oil is used to increase spiritual awareness and to create a calming, relaxing environment.
Studies have found that when inhaled, Hinoki cypress leaf oil can lead to a decrease in oxy-Hb concentration in the right prefrontal cortex as well as increased activity in the parasympathetic nervous system. This provides evidence that Hinoki can bring about physiological relaxation. In other words, it can help to reduce stress and anxiety.Hinoki essential oil is renowned for its efficacy in formulations designed to combat bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It is an excellent decongestant, so it is widely used to treat sinus congestion and respiratory issues. When used in skin preparations, Hinoki essential oil is considered gentle, in addition to providing antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties to treat rashes, cuts, abrasions, and other minor skin irritations.
