Hinoki contains cypress oil. The component of the cypress oil is said to have the effect of making the parasympathetic nervous system dominant. Hinoki has a refreshing woody aroma as if you are taking a forest bath.
Data show that alpha-pinene, the main component of this fragrance, makes the parasympathetic nervous system dominant. Thus, it calms the mind and relaxes the body, which can be expected to have a high sleep effect.
In particular, hinoki from Kochi contains more alpha-pinene than other regions.
< How to care >
Hinoki pillows can be used for a long time with regular care.
Although the pillows cannot be washed in water, the natural insecticide and antibacterial properties of hinoki make them very easy to care for.
-. Pillow sleeve and pillowcases are washable, however, the wood cubes cannot be washed in water.
-. It is highly recommended to remove the pillow sleeve or case from the hinoki wood cubes and air dry it in the shade for one full day in a well-ventilated place. Turning the pillow over periodically will allow the moisture absorbed by the chips to be fully released. (You can also dry them in the sun for short periods of time). A good rule of thumb is to do this once or twice a week in the summer and once or twice a month in the winter.
-. Wood cubes should not be washed in water. It will accelerate deterioration. Also, the essential oil, which is the source of the fragrance, will be lost. The natural ingredients contained in hinoki allow for hygienic use.
-. For long-term storage, it is recommended that the product be stored in a cool, dark, and airtight place.
< Caution in use >
-. Because hinoki is a natural material, the essential oil components of hinoki may seep through to the surface when exposed to direct sunlight or placed in high room temperatures.
-. The essential oil that is the source of the fragrance is gradually released.
Even if the scent is no longer felt from the hinoki pillow, the effect of the essential oil is still being released. If you wish to enjoy the fragrance for a longer period of time, please add natural hinoki oil. Since the natural oil has a strong fragrance, 2 to 3 drops per application is sufficient. After applying the oil, rub it well and blend it into the pillow.
-. Hinoki wood may discolor or chip over time. Such cubes should be removed and disposed of as combustible waste. Additional filling (sold separately) can be replenished for a fresh hinoki pillow.
