MONTH OF :  HIBA

Uncover the Olfactory Plant Through a Single Feature

This series aims to celebrate the beauty of nature's scents by highlighting a specific olfactory plant each month. With careful selection, we have curated a collection that showcases the unique scents and characteristics of these plants, offering an authentic experience that fosters a deeper appreciation for natural scents.

It is native to Japan, Hiba has a long history of use in Japanese culture for its scent and practical applications, and its essential oil is cherished in aromatherapy to help reduce stress and anxiety and has also antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Common Name:  Hiba, Asunaro
Botanical Name: Thujopsis dolabrata
Origin: Japan
Plant Family: Cupressaceae

Scent: Fresh woody

Hiba is a medium to large evergreen tree that can grow up to 40 meters tall with a trunk diameter of 1,5 meters. It is notable for its fresh woody scent, which is attributed to the presence of a compound called Hinokitiol which it contains in high amounts, interestingly even more than in the actual Hinoki tree. It is known for its calming and relaxing effect and has a soothing quality that can promote a sense of tranquility and grounding. 

In addition to its aromatic qualities, the Hiba tree is also valued for its durable wood, which is resistant to decay and insect damage. The wood is used in traditional Japanese construction, including the making of temples, shrines, and other wooden structures.

Japanese Sumi Ink | By Kinkoen  ​  Tracing back to the 6th generation, Kinkoen was founded in Nara prefecture by the ancestor of the current master artisan, Nagano-san, now working together with his son.

Japanese Sumi Ink

By Kinkoen

Tracing back to the 6th generation, Kinkoen was founded in Nara prefecture by the ancestor of the current master artisan, Nagano-san, now working together with his son. They have been making Sumi ink with the traditional method passed down from generation to generation.

Amazed by the sophisticated scent of the ink that comes drifting in the air thanks to the Ryu-noh (borneol) resin and the calming effect on the mind through repetitive hand movement during the Sumi preparation by rubbing the Sumi ink on a Suzuri stone. This is a pure Zen meditation, practiced over centuries in Japan.

The time-consuming whole-making process of Sumi ink takes 4 months to even a few years - it starts with burning oil lamps to collect soot which is later blended with gelatin and Ryu-noh (borneol) resin, kneaded together, molded in a kashi-gata and let dry afterward.

Ryu-noh (borneol) is a precious crystallized resin used in Eastern medicine as well as in Japanese incense, this natural material is sourced from the Borneo camphor tree.

They are worn with layers of oil after being burned,  surprisely light but having a strong individual charm - we exactly describe them as having a ‘soul-living-in’ property.
