History of Ho Wood

The Hon-sho tree has been long treasured for its beautifully grained wood. It was historically used to create the handles of Japanese swords, and today can be found in cabinetry and furniture making. Its bright oil can be found in many skin care products, and in aromatherapy is often used as a substitute for rosewood oil thanks to its similar aromatic properties and in that ho-wood is a much more sustainable resource than the rosewood tree.

Using Ho Wood Essential Oil

Aromatherapy Uses

Bath & Shower

Add 5-10 drops to hot bath water, or sprinkle into shower steam before getting in for an at-home spa experience.
