The cypress wood part that supports the stability of the mind is a reliable existence

Hinoki is a tree species familiar to Japanese people along with cedar. The wood is solid and resistant to insects, and is used as a building material for the main pillar of Horyuji Temple. Even if it is the same cypress, this varies depending on the production area, and the scent is completely different depending on the extraction part. The xylem often contains sesquiterpene alcohols in addition to monoterpene hydrocarbons, which are the components of the fragrance called forest, and is perfect for when you want to relax.

A building material with excellent antiseptic properties described in "Nihonshoki" (Chronicles of Japan)

Hinoki was a building material that was longed for as a luxury item. It is used in the World Heritage sites of Horyu-ji Temple, Shoso-in Temple, and Ise-jingu Shrine. I think many people have experience using cypress baths in hot springs, but even in the "Nihon Shoki", it is written that cypress is good for building materials. It is used in Japanese life as wood with excellent antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

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.
