This EO is sweet and a little sharp, but I find it more herbaceous than woody, though it is both. I just sniffed it directly from the bottle and found that it cleared my sinuses. While I don't find myself using this EO quite as much as some of the others I use in perfuming, I still like it a lot. I just think it's a little pricey for not being in my top favorite oils

I am a Reiki Master and have created a wonderful smudge with your Hinoki Wood Essential Oil. Last summer I was in Kyoto, Japan on Mt. Kurama. The energy from this trees is amazing. I was so delighted to see this wonderful oil in your collection. It is truly a very high energy oil and blends well with a number of other essential oils. The woody earthy scent is very calming and makes it wonderful for use during meditation and Reiki session with clients. My husband was diagnosed with Bells' Palsey and after reading all the medicinal properties of it I applied Hinoki Wood oil to the facial area where the musceles would be affected by Bells' Palsey. It is viral so being proactive along with his medicine I applied it along nerve pathways of his facial affected area. My husband loved the aroma. The doctor was amazed by his quick recovery. Thank you for carrying this amazing essential oil.

I purchased this oil to use in my CP soap. I wanted to find something earthy and more masculine. This is PERFECT! Very masculine scent, almost cologne-like.

I diffused this Hinoki Wood oil for several hours in our bedroom that had musty smell for about six months. Now the smell has gone and my husband and I sleep much better at night. This oil is very warm and comforting to us. I love it and I recommand to anybody who suffers from fungus which is common to people who live in wet climate area. Only thing I concern is that it's too expensive to buy a large amount at once.
