Fokinia is a towering needled evergreen conifer native to warm, moist, and mild forests in Vietnam, China, and northern Laos. The fissured bark of mature trees releases aromatic oils that perfume the forest air, perfect for luxurious forest bathing walks. Siam Wood essential oil allows us to bring a Fokinia forest inside through diffusion, a drop in a salt pipe, or as a sensual addition to steam baths.
This aromatic conifer is prized in Vietnam for its dense, aromatic timber wood used to make artisan furniture and art. Distilling the essential oil brings new purpose to harvesting the trunk, which is left behind after harvesting the timber wood, and offers the highest concentration of Fokienol, the main constituent of Siam Wood essential oil.
In aromatherapy, Siam Wood essential oil cultivates feelings of coziness, a comforted heart, and inner calm.
