One of Japan's most precious woods

Yoshino Forest in Nara Prefecture is home to hinoki cypress, which has been prized as a building material since ancient times. The essential oil was distilled from the cypress harvested from the Yoshino forest. Yoshino cypress is highly fragrant and instantly transports you to the ancient times of Nara. It is ideal for enjoying forest bathing easily at home. Among Japanese essential oils, it has a sacred scent that gives you calmness and awakening. Also great for meditation, mindfulness and yoga.

Thermal circulation distillation is like anhydrous pot cooking

In the normal steam distillation method, raw materials are placed in a large pot, steam is applied from below, and the steam that hits the lid is collected and cooled to separate the essential oil into aromatic distilled water. However, this Yoshino cypress essential oil is extracted by a distillation method called ``thermal circulation method'', and the raw material is put in a cauldron with a slightly reduced pressure like a waterless pot, and heated by sandwiching it between iron plates filled with hot water. I am adopting the method. It has a very strong scent because it evaporates the moisture in the wood itself instead of letting in water vapor from the outside.

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.
