The scent of cedar grown slowly over 200 years

Did you know that the scientific name of cedar is Cryptomeria japonica = "hidden treasure of Japan"?
The cypress of overseas essential oil is made from cypress, so at first I thought it had a similar scent, but the scent of Japanese cedar is different, and the scent is completely different depending on the area where it is harvested. Among them, the scent of "Oguni cedar", which has been carefully grown for over 200 years, is very fruity! The people of the Oguni Town Forestry Cooperative also noticed it only after comparing the scent with other cedar essential oils for the first time. Why it's so fruity compared to other cedars is a mystery, but there are people who compare the calm yet refreshing scent to the "boss who can do it."

Each one comes with a handmade wood cube

This premium box has a wood cube inside, and you can enjoy the fragrance as soon as you drop the essential oil. This Oguni cedar cube is made by children of Oguni Support School in Oguni Town, Kumamoto Prefecture, which is an SDGs future city, and is handmade one by one. This wood cube alone has a nice scent, but if you add Oguni cedar essential oil, the scent will slowly spread.

Premium oil that can only be extracted in limited quantities

Among the scents of cedar, it has a fairly fruity scent. Among the cedars that have regional differences, it has a gorgeous scent that is by far the best. This is a valuable Japanese essential oil that can only be obtained from 200-year-old cedar trees.

Possibilities for utilization are expanding from the perspective of dementia prevention

The limbic system, which controls smell, and the hippocampus, which controls memory, are closely related. As a result, memories and scents are easily recorded in the brain, and the scent triggers a phenomenon in which memories are recalled. This is called the "Proust effect". This is because there is a scene in the novel, In Search of Lost Time, where the scent of madeleines and tea evokes memories of the past. In today's aging society, the number of dementia patients is also increasing. In order to prevent dementia, it turned out to be effective to train the sense of smell on a daily basis.
