Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Shinrin-yoku—a Japanese term meaning “forest bathing”—is the mindful practice of absorbing the calming atmosphere of serene places like the forest. Connecting to nature regularly provides important opportunities to disconnect from technology, relax, and unwind from daily life. The contemplative practice of forest bathing is the inspiration for this transformative essential oil blend.
The Shinrin-Yoku essential oil blend is formulated with CPTG® essential oils rich in terpenes associated with forest bathing. Terpenes are part of a class of important compounds called phytoncides that serve as part of the tree’s natural defense system. The phytoncides found in the Shinrin-Yoku blend include limonene, αα-pinene, and β-pinene, often found in oils known for their comforting, grounding aromas. Diffusing terpenes-rich essential oils promotes a calming atmosphere, ideal for times of slowing down, focusing, and centering. When our environments are in harmony, we can better strive for a more complete sense of well-being.
