Hinoki oil is a member of the Cupressaceae family. This oil is lemon-scented with a hint of camphor. It is classed as a top note and blends well with camphoraceous, citrus, herby, floral, minty, spicy and woodsy oils.
Hinoki's antispasmodic properties can be effective against leg cramps, and muscle pulls. The antispasmodic agent can help clear up congestion, eliminate phlegm build-up, and treat asthma.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
