Dr. Nick Notes

Thujopsis dolobrata / Hiba Cedar belongs to a coniferous genus of the cypress family that is indigenous specifically to Japan. Hiba Cedar is a medium to large evergreen tree with red-brown bark. Hiba Cedar also has common names: Hiba Wood, False Aborvitae, or Hiba Aborvitae,

Thujopsis dolobrata is a highly valued ornamental tree in Japan that is commonly planted around temples. The wood has been favored for its use in carpentry due to its high resistance to rot, pleasing aroma, and beautiful finish. The high resistance to rot is due to the strong antimicrobial property of the Hiba wood’s essential oil. The oil has exhibited effectiveness in killing antibiotic resistant bacteria in scientific studies.

Hiba Cedarwood Essential Oil is a unique and very uncommon Cedar oil that comes from Japan.  There is a very clean & clear energy around Hiba, like sitting in a Japanese sauna and experiencing your nervous system relax.  I’ve found this a unique extract for use in botanical perfumery, homemade cleaning supplies and simply used to aromatize your environment using a diffuser ~

How to Use

  • ~ Add (0.5 - 2.5%) to body care products such as Liquid Soaps, Shampoos or Salves etc. to enhance cleansing properties.
  • ~ Apply 3-5 drops on the soles of feet, and let sit for 5-10 minutes to promote states of deep calm and focus.
  • ~ Use as an insect repellant - apply directly to the skin neat or infused into a carrier oil (~2.5 - 5%). Can also make a mister using 2.5% EO infused in Spring Water!

    One of my favorites. Earthy. It’s like I am the forest when I’m wearing it. I enjoy with Super Chakra Blend
