Asunaro is popular as a building material because of its insect-like scent.

A cold-tolerant tree that lives in the northern limit of the cypress habitat. It is characterized by the scent that makes you feel the tree itself that puts down the roots in the earth. Asunaro is known to be resistant to insects as a building material, but essential oils also have this power, and tsujopsene accounts for about 70% of the ingredients.

The height of the tree is lower than that of the Japanese cypress, and it looks like it is trying to catch up with the Japanese cypress. There are various theories about how it was named and how it got its name.

Since yuica's Asunaro essential oil is extracted from the wood, it has a more stable and calm scent compared to the leaves and branches, and you can feel the scent of the wood.

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.
