Antibacterial and Anti-insect Effect
Phytoncides coming from cedar, pine, cypress, oak, and eucalyptus trees suppress the growth of bacteria and microorganisms. Cedar and cypress tree phytoncides also repel insects, hence the reason houses built with wood from these trees remain insect-free for over 100 years.
Phytoncides also act as a neutralizer for bad odors, as evidenced by the old saying "In a deep forest you wonft smell even a dead animal.h
We Japanese have known the effect of phytoncides since early times, and still wisely use it in everyday life.
- A bath scented with sweet flag leaves on Boys' Day is relaxing and refreshing.
- Cedar wood used for a barrel of Japanese Sake mellows the taste of liquor, and preserves it from decay.
- Termites keep their distance from a house made of cypress.
- Wrapping rice cakes in the leaves from oak, cherry and persimmon trees keeps it free from bacteria.
