A scent resembling the sharpened high notes of a soprano singer

It is a Japanese essential oil that comes from Kitayama cedar harvested in Keihoku, Kyoto. Sugi has different characteristics depending on the region, but I think the characteristic of Kitano cedar is its lightness. If you use Yakusugi as the base note, the middle note is the common cedar from Honshu, and the Kitayama cedar is close to the top note. The light scent that fills your chest is perfect for waking up in the morning and when you want to feel refreshed.

People with hay fever should use cedar essential oil

People with hay fever may feel itchy or sneeze just by hearing the word "cedar", but in fact, cedar essential oil and water are said to suppress the symptoms of hay fever. (Bulletin of Faculty of Engineering, Saitama University, No. 46, “Suppression effect of tree essential oil on cedar pollen allergy” Wang Qingyue*, Toshihiko Kaneko**, Tatsuro Ohira, July 28, 2013)

Light fragrance and high antibacterial activity that have been used in food

The scientific name of cedar is Cryptomeria japonica, and it is endemic to Japan. Since ancient times, it has been used for magewappa and cedar barrels, and its high antibacterial properties have blended into people's lives. Today, thinning of cedar trees is essential to enrich the forest ecosystem. In order to make effective use of pruned branches and leaves, the business model of making Japanese cedar essential oil is utilized.

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.
