Cul-de-sac - Hiba Candle
Aomori Hiba is unique to Japan and considered one of the three major beautiful trees of Japan, along with Kiso hinoki cypress and Akita cedar. As it grows slowly by weathering the northern severe snowstorm with a high resistance, Aomori Hiba has been used as building materials of Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples since ancient times.
Cul-de-sac extract the natural hiba oil from the wood waste of over 250 year-old Aomori Hiba wood through water vapor distillation. There are more than 40 different kinds of ingredients in the essential oil extracted from the Aomori Hiba. Two ingredients, Hinokitiol and β-Dolabrin, have the strongest antibacterial effect. Trees with Hinokitiol and β-Dolabrin are rare in the world. In Japan, only the Aomori Hiba has these two ingredients.
