Found MUJI Plants and Healthy Living

Spring used to be a season when cotton sacks were filled with Japanese mugwort, as it is plucked along paths between rice fields. This was then used in the bath, as it is replaced by dried mikan (mandarin orange) peel in the wintertime. The bitter steam that rose from decocting herbs; the weed juice that was used for bug bites. In the recollections of time spent with grandmother, we find wisdom in using the plants around us for maintaining our well beings.

With four seasons and an abundance of water, Japan is a treasure trove of plants. Not merely for consumption or used as raw materials, making the best use of the plants that grow around us for healthier living, is a folk wisdom that has been with us since primitive times.

About 5 to 10% of the plants growing in nature have functions that can be used in maintaining the body’s condition. The body can experience this through the mouth from drinking teas, the skin while soaking in baths and through the nose with fragrances.

Under the title “Plants and Healthy Living”, Found MUJI introduces teas, bath packs, essential oils and more, all made from plants grown naturally in Japan where any processing is kept to a minimal. Through the perspective of Found MUJI, we have rendered the forms of timeless wisdom for everyday living into ways that can blend smoothly into modern lifestyles.

We invite you to embrace the bounty of plants as it is offered by nature.

Found MUJI Japanese-grown Herb Bath Pack Japanese-grown Herb Bath Pack

Bathing is an indispensable custom for Japanese people. Plants growing close at hand, peel left over after eating mikan (mandarin orange), and other ingredients are dried and added to baths where the aroma is savoured, while the body is warmed and the skin moisturised.  Our bath packs blended Japanese-grown herbs in their natural state, emphasising aromatic plants such as hinoki cypress, mikan and peppermint.

Found MUJI Essential Oil from Japanese-grown Plants Essential Oil from Japanese-grown Plants

Distilling plants and squeezing fruit peels can yield traces of oils with condensed aromas. While essential oils have their origin in the perfume culture of the West and carry an image of opulence, the familiar aromas of Japanese plants including peppermint, hiba cedar, Japanese cedar and ponkan citrus can evoke a sense of nostalgia that calms the spirit. 

Found MUJI Shikoku-grown Ponkan Shikoku-grown Ponkan

The ponkan citrus fruit is said to have originated from India. Our ponkan has more sweetness and fuller flavour than the Satsuma mandarin, with a sweet fragrance that is somewhat redolent of tropical flowers. Once a year, ponkan are carefully harvested one by one, with blemished fruit shipped as general produce for processing into juice and other products. The rind of these is distilled to extract ponkan essential oil.

Found MUJI Soy Candles Soy Candles

Made with edible oil from soybeans, these soy candles have a lower melting point than paraffin (derived from petroleum) or beeswax, resulting in a longer burning time and a soft, relaxing illumination. They are said to help keep the air clean by burning airborne dust while lit and producing little soot when the flame goes out. The candles are packaged in aluminium canisters that were originally made for the commercial transport of perfumes.

Found MUJI Sun-drying and Sieves Sun-drying and Sieves

Sunlight and natural breeze carry away moisture and lock in the power of plants. People spread leaves out on sieves in the garden and leisurely await for it to dry. The exposure to sunlight also enhances flavors. Since the old days, people have long held wisdom for drawing the most out of the nature’s goodness.

Found MUJI Bamboo Tea Bag Bamboo Tea Bag

The village of Yamazoe in Nara Prefecture is where Yamato tea is produced. While the higher-grade sencha tea becomes a commercial product, local residents enjoy the coarser bancha tea, as those heading out to work in the farms would take along a kettle full of such tea. Our tea bag, crafted from bamboo, holds tea leaves for steeping and also serves as a tea strainer. The hands of local craftsmen carefully shape the roundness of each lovable, palm-sized bamboo tea bag.
