Amayori Hinoki Onsen Body Wash
Bathing is an essential part of Japanese culture and a joy-sparking part of Marie’s daily routine. Onsens – or natural hot springs – are cherished destinations in Japan. At an onsen or at home, cleansing the skin is the first step in a Japanese bathing ritual.
In this moisturizing body wash, seaweed extract detoxifies the body while virgin coconut cream and antioxidant-rich sea buckthorn nourish the skin. Inspired by onsens that use fragrant hinoki wood – a cypress tree native to central Japan – for their bathing structures, this unisex blend is infused with hinoki essential oil to ease tension and encourage relaxation along with calming geranium, soothing vetiver and mood-elevating jasmine sambac and red mandarin.
To use, pour a quarter-sized amount into your palm, body scrub towel or washcloth/mitt. Massage into your skin for a minute or more. Breathe deeply. Follow with the Amayori Hinoki Onsen Salt Soak Set for a traditional bathing ritual.
