Hinoki oil is known for its refreshing and uplifting aroma. It has a fresh, woodsy scent with a hint of spice and is often compared to that of pine, but it is considered to be more complex and subtle. Some people describe the scent as invigorating and energizing, while others find it calming and relaxing. We personally prefer hinoki over any other woodsy oil.

Chamaecyparis obtusa (hinoki) originates from Japan.

Hinoki is our favorite functional fragrance to use during our evening routine. We either apply a small amount on the top of our hands 30 minutes before bed or use it in our diffuser.

Hinoki has a variety of benefits, both when used in aromatherapy and when applied topically. Some of the potential benefits of hinoki oil include:

1. Relaxation and stress relief: The aroma of hinoki oil is believed to be calming and relaxing, making it a popular choice for use in aromatherapy. It may help to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress and promote a sense of well-being.

2. Antifungal properties: Hinoki oil has been shown to have antifungal properties, which may make it useful in treating fungal infections of the skin or nails.

3. Improved respiratory function: Inhaling the aroma of hinoki oil may help to improve respiratory function and alleviate respiratory symptoms such as coughing, congestion, and difficulty breathing.

4. Antibacterial properties: Hinoki oil has been shown to have antibacterial properties, which may make it effective in fighting bacteria that can cause infections.

5. Skin care: Hinoki oil may have anti-inflammatory properties, which may make it useful in reducing redness and irritation of the skin. It may also be helpful in treating acne and other skin conditions.

It's important to note that while hinoki oil may have these potential benefits, more research is needed to fully understand its effects and how it can be used most effectively.

Love having this in my collection

I use this with jasmine for my own perfume.


Hinoki is an essential oil that everyone should at least try. Everyone I show it to immediately buys their own bottle because it’s that good.

Great for my anxiety

Hinoki combined with meditation have been really helping with my anxiety lately.

Great for topical and DIY

I apply directly to my wrists throughout the day but also put in lotions and soaps I make at home.
