The Pottery Stone Diffuser
The Pottery Stone Diffuser has the porous quality of ceramics. Unlike a natural stone, it absorbs the Diffuser Oil to let the fragrance slowly radiate into the air. Each stone has its own quality, and its cool hue will brighten your space. We entrusted Shigaraki potters to make the stones. Shigaraki is known as one of the “Six Ancient Kilns of Japan.” The process of kneading clay with water then firing it may sound simple.

But the choices made in each stage, from the selection of the clay; how the clay gets mixed with water; the temperature and duration of firing; to how each stone gets finished must be carefully calculated so that the stones can absorb the oil while they maintain the appearance and feel of natural stones. The stones must have durability, functionality, and a beautiful presence. They are a testament to the trial and error endured by the skillful potters.

Diffuser Oils
Some fragrance notes appear and fade immediately. Then there are the low notes that continue to linger. The Diffuser Oil for the Pottery Stone Diffuser offers a multi-tiered ensemble of fragrance.

Our perfumers excel at blending science and art. Their sensibility has a huge effect on how the fragrance transforms through time. There is the scent that rises as soon as the oil hits the stone. Then once the oil seeps into the stone, the fragrance starts to slowly radiate, and it goes through a subtle change from the top note to the last note. We at Nippon Kodo are masters of this artistry.

The Diffuser Oil comes in four different fragrances that are inspired by the three elements found in nature. We hope they bring you contentment.

Our fragrances meet the following regulatory standards of Europe and the USA.
- The IFRA Standards
- EU CLP Legislation
- State of California VOC Regulations
