Aomori Hiba essential oil bottle + wood blocks.
Cul-de-sac extracts natural oil from 250-year old Aomori Hiba wood by steam distillation.
There are over 40 different types of ingredients in the extracted essential oil of the Aomori Hiba. The two main ingredients, Hinokitiol and β-Dolabrin, have a strong anti-bacterial effect.
Trees with Hinokitiol and β-Dolabrin are rare in the world. In Japan, only Aomori Hiba has these two ingredients.
It also repels parasites like moths and insects and prevents mold growth.
This oil can be used as an air purifier. It is also an antibacterial agent for cars and shoe boxes.
Despite its rarity, Hiba wood has always been the preferred species for the construction of Japanese temples and imperial villas. Its exceptional purifying properties have earned it this noble destiny.
Hiba essential oil contains around 40 beneficial molecules, including Hinokitiol and β-Dolabrin, which have the most powerful antibacterial effect.
To give you daily access to this Japanese treasure, Cul de Sac HIBA has developed a range for the interior made from Hiba’s bark and essence.
