  • When applying the oil to the skin, it is best to dilute it with a carrier oil, such as coconut, almond, or jojoba oil to minimize skin sensitivity. Our recommendation is one¬†drop of Hinoki Ritual for 1/2 teaspoon of carrier oil.
  • When used aromatically or topically, cypress oil is generally safe and non-toxic. Keep in mind that a potential skin sensitivity reaction can occur.¬†¬†Make sure to perform a patch test before using cypress oil directly on the skin.
  • If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor‚Äôs care, consult your physician before to use.

  • As of now, there is not enough research to support its safety for children. Consequently, we recommend avoiding the use of our Hinoki oil for young children.
