Or a huge project at work that seems like there’s no end in sight? Take some time to unwind and diffuse it after a long day. It can help ease stress while soothing any related tense emotions. Plus, if yoga or meditation is a way for you to release stress, diffusing Hinoki Leaf during your practices can help create an overall tranquil atmosphere. Diffuse this oil by placing 3-4 drops per 100 mL of water.

  • I was on a trip and in my hotel room I woke up with a bite on my arm. I had a few oils with me, but it didn’t seem to help. I came home to find this oil in my mailbox. I thought why not try it, since nothing else worked. I put it on neat, since it was my arm and next morning my bite was amazingly almost healed. I love this oil… Thank you for another great oil of the month.

  • Got this in the OOTM box and I LOVE IT! Smells amazing in the bottle, being diffused, I have it my lotion. My friend used it on a small scrape she had and it worked wonders! I hope that it will be available for sale, because I am going to run out quickly.

  • I’m a regular OOTM subscriber and I really love this oil! Can I tell you, though, how much I miss you guys noting “Blends Well With” on your inserts and/or blog posts? I find it VERY helpful

    1. Thank you for your feedback! I’ll make sure it gets passed along for the inserts and always included in the blog.
