Math Salt Hinoki Bath Salts

Cypress bath salts in traditional wooden sake container

Often used for making wooden bathtubs or as flooring in modern baths, hinoki is the most common type of Japanese cypress, and famous for its characteristic aroma when wet. The Math Salt Hinoki Bath Salts harnesses this very Japanese fragrance, transforming your bathtub into a traditional one like those you can still find in onsen hot springs in the Japanese countryside. How? By coming in a wooden box made of hinoki and by containing, together with sea salt, a sprig of hinoki!

The 56 x 56 x 39 mm (2.2 x 2.2 x 1.5") hinoki box for the bath salts is also responsible for the unusual name: it has nothing to do with math, but is a strange transliteration of the word "masu" (a wooden sake cup box). You just need to put the box with the salt in your bathtub and enjoy a uniquely Japanese soak. Afterwards, read the esteeming-boosting message that appears at the bottom of the box.
