Japanese philosophers once viewed the world as having five unique elements: air, earth, fire, sky and water. These elements are commonly used throughout Buddhist architecture and now have inspired this line of pure soy candles. From spicy to refreshing, each scent provides a vivid illustration of each symbolic element. Each candle is hand-poured from sustainable soy wax locally in the United States, and includes a Zen poem packaged within a beautiful handcrafted box.

After many years of working as an artist, Eiko Miyazaki created te+te, a natural wellness collection that harnesses the natural properties of Japanese hinoki trees. Inspired by the concept of forest bathing- the Japanese practice of walking in the woods to invigorate the spirits- te+te aims to reconnect people with nature no matter where they live.

Shiatsu is an ancient Japanese therapeutic method that helps relieve muscular tension and improve physical and mental well-being. When applied to strategic areas, massaging with a shiatsu stick can help relieve bodily pressures and tensions without any external salves or medicines. The shiatsu stick is made of cedar-like Japanese Hinoki wood, with both pointy and smooth ends, allowing you to choose how you would like to apply pressure to sensitive areas. This essential tool and accompanying guide to shiatsu make it easy to bring this homeopathic tradition right to your home.
With its bracing, spring-like scent and restorative properties, Hinoki is an ideal natural material for bath and wellness products. Hinoki is acquired through tree-thinning, an eco-friendly process where surplus wood is extracted from unhealthy, overcrowded forests. Tree thinning allows healthy trees to grow better and evenly distributes natural resources like sun, water, and soil throughout the forest.
