Traditions of May

7th century Japan is known as the Asuka Period, a flourishing time of high culture and fine-arts, when Japan was ruled by its first female monarch, empress Suiko.

An avid fan of herbal cures, in 612 AD the empress decreed the 5th day of the 5th month of every year to be the public day for collecting wild irises and yomogi leaves.

In Japan the tradition of collecting yomogi leaves and irises is called kusuri-gari (medicine hunt)

The tradition is called kusuri-gari (medicine hunt) and observed to this day.

May 5th was celebrated at the imperial court as the iris festival. The day has become an important date for festivals and celebrations, also known as

  • Tango no sekku (Double Fifth)
  • Kodomo no hi (Children's Day)
  • Ayame no hi (Day of Irises)

How to Use

  • Make an infusion: In small bowl, pour 4 cups (about 1000 ml) of hot water over the pack. Wait for 10 minutes.
  • While waiting, fill your bath with comfortably hot clear water.
  • Add the infusion to your bath.
  • Take the pack with you inside your bath. Immerse yourself, relax and breathe in the exotic sweet and spicy herbal aromas.

You do not need to take a long bath. 10-20 minutes is adequate for most. After bathing, rinse your body and drink a cup of water to replenish yourself.

Take out the pack, hang and let it air dry. Rinse the tub. Take a nice, long rest!

You can use the same pack for a second bath. The infusion will be lighter in color (you can increase the infusion time to 15 minutes).
