Mental health is an incredibly important part of overall health. With a growing number of Americans experiencing anxiety and depression, Shikohin joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health.
Our face, skin, and complexion are the windows to our internal states. That’s why skincare is selfcare.
Taking care of your body and mind is essential—especially given the increased stress of recent years. The time you spend taking care of your body— releasing its tension and nourishing your skin—allows you to connect more deeply with your thoughts while also improving your outward appearance.
Looking at Japanese wellness practices, like onsen baths and shiatsu massage, shows us the importance of rituals to balance our bodies, minds, and nature. Inspired by the Japanese wisdom passed down over centuries, Shikohin develops wellness rituals and solutions to help you soothe stress, indulge, and nourish your entire body.
The Shikohin Body Ritual consists of four CBD-enhanced solutions you can integrate into your everyday life: Hemp & Rice Body Scrub, Enchanting Dry Body Oil, Instant Relief Roll-On, and Tsubo-Oshi Massage Tool. Used together, they create a daily ritual that will give you a new glow and leave you feeling refreshed and balanced.
As you begin your Shikohin Body Ritual, you’ll take two spoonfuls of the Hemp & Rice Body Scrub and gently rub it onto your damp skin, taking special care to exfoliate all of your driest areas, like your elbows and knees. The scrub is enriched with exfoliating rice powder and hydrating hemp fiber, and along with CBD isolate, it purifies your skin, leaving behind a thin, soothing layer of nourishing oils.
Follow the body scrub with fast-absorbing dry body oil, which offers a pleasant aroma and leaves your skin visibly luminous and restored. It contains hemp seed oil (cannabis sativa), calming Tahitian tamanu oil, antioxidant-rich CBD oil, and limonene terpene for purification, leaving your skin and hair feeling soft and supple.
After nourishing your skin, you’re ready to end your day with a relaxing massage. Use a reflexology zone chart (included with the massage tool) to find areas in your body that need extra attention, put massage cream on the zone, and then begin applying pressure with the Tsubo-Oshi.
The reusable pressure-point massage tool—made with waterproof, sustainable silicone— fits perfectly into your hand, and includes soft yet sturdy points to help stimulate tsubos (meridian points) with precision. It offers an experience akin to shiatsu, releasing your tight muscles, soothing your aches, and calming your mind.
With indulgent solutions created in harmony with nature, the Shikohin Body Ritual allows you to connect not only with yourself but with ancient Japanese traditions that have helped relax the mind, revitalize the body, and realign the soul for thousands of years. Embrace these natural products stress prevention and pain management, that offer holistic wellness for your mental and physical ails.
Using Shikohin’s CBD roller as part of your body ritual can help ease muscle tension and promote recovery. We recommend re-applying it as necessary throughout the day. The roll-on gel combines CBD with licorice root, peony root, lovage root, and poria cocos mushrooms to relieve inflammation and diffuse joint pain, allowing you to focus on what’s important, instead of your pain.
Shikohin believes in leaving the world a better place than we found it. By harnessing the precious wisdom of our ancestors and passing it on from generation to generation through each of our thoughtfully-crafted rituals, we invite people to indulge in the simple richness of life.
By slowing down, connecting with ourselves and nature, and giving ourselves respite from this hectic modern world, we regain a sense of balance, perspective, and mental wellbeing as we delight in moments of peace.
