Hong Kuai (Chamaecyparis formosensis) comes from the Young Living Taiwan Cooperative Farm in Taitung, Taiwan. Hong Kuai is a tree that grows on the steep mountains of the local rainforest, and from the naturally fallen trees and branches comes this sesquiterpene-rich, woodsy-scented essential oil that promotes deep, energizing relaxation.
In Taiwan, shrines, altars and temples are often built from the aromatic wood of Hong Kuai. But also baths for relaxation and regeneration are made with and from Hong Kuai.
The name “Hong Kuai” means “The revered trees for the temple-building community”. The insect repellent, extremely decay resistant and aromatic wood is perfect for temple and shrine, it supports the entry into silence, the connection with the self and is therefore perfect for inner work, yoga, prayer and meditation.
The scent of Hong Kuai essential oil grounds and relaxes the body and soothes mental, emotional and physical tensions. It helps you to see the possibilities of life, strengthens your inner vision and increases your awareness.
Hong Kuai trees get 1000 to 2000 years old – and who knows? Perhaps their essential oil also supports your longevity.
