Cul de Sac: Aromatic Hiba wood from Aomori, Japan

The origin of Cul de Sac, the company’s name as well as brand’s name derives from a French term meaning a street which ends, traditionally there are houses or stores lining this end with a sense of community. In fact, their shop & atelier is in real "Cul de Sac". Mineko Muraguchi and her brother love this space that they hardly renovated from an old house as well as the peaceful environment.

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. This also keeps pests such as moths and insects away. Wild Incense Spray has a fresh and organic forest aroma.

To add an aromatic and relaxing fragrance to any room or closet, use the aomori Hiba wood oil. For a relaxing and natural sleep experience, use the amori Hiba fine chip sachets. You will feel as if you were strolling through a fresh forest. Hiba wood oil is also safe to use around pets.
