Yakusugi Essential Oil


Yakusugi Essential Oil is extracted from the buried remains of Yakusugi trees native to the pristine forests of Yakushima Island, a World Heritage site. The oil is distilled from raw materials such as Yakusugi stumps and root stocks which remain free of decay, even after 200-300 years.

The essential oil contains casinene and mulolen as its main components and the fragrance evokes the feeling of bathing amongst a beautiful forest with the scent of the wilderness.

  • Some citrus essential oils (e.g., Yuzu), when diluted and applied to the skin, may cause skin damage if exposed to sunlight while on the skin. Avoid sunlight for at least 12 hours after using these essential oils.
  • Pregnant, nursing women, and children under 3 years old should use it only as an aromatic bath. For children over 3 years old and the elderly, use at a concentration less than half of that for adults.
  • Essential oils are flammable. Do not use near fire.
