Kyūshi products are developed with knowledge and care. We hope you find them as lovely and beneficial as we do. Kyūshi can only recommend products they feel will be beneficial to the whole wellbeing of the individual. Kyūshi does not claim to be able to diagnose and cure specific conditions. The recommendations we make are based on a combination of the scientifically proven and anecdotal benefits of the oils used in each of the particular blends. If you have any concerns about using any products for any known conditions then we suggest you consult the advice of a qualified medical professional and/or dermatologist.
We list all of the ingredients included in all of our products so we highly recommend checking the ingredients list for any allergies and sensitivities known to you. In the event of a reaction to any of our product please seek the advice of your local medical practitioner. Please read the label before use and by using our product in the way we recommend you are agreeing that you have no known sensitivities or allergies in our products and that you agree our products are safe to use on your skin.
Although essential oils are generally safe to use both internally and externally; Kyūshi products have been specifically blended for external application only and should not be ingested and use around eyes should be avoided. Although if you or somebody with you accidentally ingests some of our oil we do highly recommend that should you feel unwell then seek medical attention immediately as essential oils can have powerful effects which is why they are so good for our skin.
In the event of any unusual symptoms please seek medical attention immediately.

How do you say Kyushi?
We really don’t mind how you say it, but we say key – you – see.
Can anyone use Kyūshi Face Oils?
Yes, we designed the face oils to be used by everyone, anywhere, anytime. Our brand is gender free.
What does non comedogenic mean?
Our oils are classed as non comedogenic which means they are either a 0 or a 1 on the comedogenic scale. The scale is 0-5. 0 being the least likely to block pores and 5 being extremely likely to block pores. This was an integral part of the formulation process; these oils are designed to be used by anyone at any time of the year in any climate. The oils actually help to regulate your own oil production and can actually help rebalance your skin.
How often do I use my new face oil?
We want you to be in charge of your skin but we understand that this could be a new experience for you. We advise using it morning and night on freshly cleansed skin. However it can be used throughout the day for a freshen up or to help with troublesome skin.
3 drops of oil isn’t enough?
This is only a guideline, you can use 1 drop or a pipette full. Sometimes you may need more and sometimes you may need less. If you have a beard or stubble you may need a little more to work through to the skin. The amount you use is totally up to you.
How long will my bottle of face oil last me?
This does depend on how much you use and how often you use it. On average we would say a 30ml bottle will last around 3 months.
How do I store my oil
We recommend storing your oil in a cool dark place, the fridge would be great but we would rather it lived somewhere accessible so it becomes part of your daily routine. As long as it’s cool and out of direct sunlight.
Why are Kyūshi Face Oils not 100% organic?
Unfortunately some of the specifically chosen oils in our blends cannot physically be produced according to organic regulations, we found them too crucial to the blend to forgo them but in this instance we do guarantee that the ingredient is carefully and ethically sourced and is 100% natural. We are a completely transparent brand so you will see the * next to organic ingredients.
How do I know which oil to choose?
With each oil you will find a description on the website with recommended use. If you still need more advice please do get in touch and we will help point you in the right direction. If you want to try them we do offer a smaller 10ml option set which has a 15% discount already applied.
Are the oils vegan friendly?
Yes, we do not use any animal derived products or products that have been tested on animals nor do we test our products on animals.
Can I use Kyūshi Face Oils if I’m pregnant or nursing/breastfeeding?
Kyūshi The Power of Ten is oil free from essential oils and this is the oil we would recommend for pregnant or nursing mothers or anyone with sensitivities to essential oils. This is something to use at your discretion, we would ask that you seek medical advice before using the oils whilst nursing due to the power of essential oils.
Are they suitable for children?
The oils have been specifically formulated to be under the legal dermal limits for essential oils. We would recommend the power of ten for children under 5 and diffusing essential oils alongside to receive the benefits that way.
Are they cruelty free?
All of our products use ingredients that are not tested on animals and Kyūshi does not and will not test on animals.
Is Kyūshi an environmentally aware brand?
Kyūshi tries to make as little impact on our planet as we can. Our products and packaging is sourced mostly in the UK and if not possible then Europe. We try and use recycled products wherever possible, throughout the making of the product and to the packaging. We ask that you recycle everything you can.
On ordering a single 10ml bottle your order may appear over packaged, due to our small business, having to bulk buy and wanting to keep the cost of the oil low we currently only have one box size. Hopefully you’ll love our oils as much as we do and we will grow and address getting smaller boxes as soon as we can to mimimize our footprint further.
We can’t find our question on here?
Please do get in touch with us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We’re always happy to help and no question is too small.
‘I cannot describe the difference in my skin since I started using your products. The Power of Ten is literally an elixir, whatever you are doing keep doing it and don’t ever stop. My skin was grey and lifeless, dull. I felt dull along with it. Life with a toddler, not enough sleep, caffeine, sun damage had all taken it’s toll. I get so many comments after using your face oils, people say my skin is glowing and I’ve stopped using foundation! Thankyou so much for giving me my confidence back.’
‘Kyūshi oils are my absolute go to all year round as they care for my skin and keep it glowing! I love Orange & Neroli in the cooler months as it nourishes my skin and the amazing scent makes me happy inside. Chamomile & Helichrysum is a total game changer in the spring and summer, soothing my jangled, sensitised hay fever skin, whilst keeping it looking great. It’s also fantastic if your skin is feeling hormonal. My skin may be changing as I get older, but my love of good quality face oils only gets stronger and Kyūshi are by far the best that I’ve tried.’
‘Kyūshi oils not only have wonderful calming fragrances but they actually work, my skin has never been better.’
‘As someone who has always had problems with my skin – spots, uneven tone, redness Kyūshi Chamomile & Helichrysum face oil has made a massive difference to my skin health. My skin is calmer, soft and smooth. I’m still getting the occasional spot of course, but they are far less frequent and don’t cause the panic they used to. I also love taking my deep breaths of my amazing face oil each morning and night, it smells so good, and reminds me to maintain a healthier mindset.’
‘I have always suffered from quite sensitive skin and consequently had to use very expensive skin care. Having said that I have never found one product that has worked for me in all climates and seasons. Then I started using Kyushi and that all changed, by choice I use the Orange & Neroli in the morning for the uplifting effects and delightful fragrance. At night the Jasmine, Lavender and Cedarwood for its calming effects. I mix both of them with a little bit of Power and Ten and this helps keep my skin hydrated without any oily residue no matter how dry or humid the atmosphere. It really is the best product I have ever used on my skin and its so reasonably priced.’
‘I have always wanted to find a plant based oil blend that helps to feed my skin the goodness it needs. The smell of all of Kyushi blended oils are so beautiful I literally look forward to using them each time. My skin doesn’t break out as much as it used to and I see a difference in my skin glow these days. 47 going on 27 in skin years !’
❤️ U Kyushi

Georgia Dorey lived and worked in Japan for two years. Georgia is now based between London and New York and is a maker and lecturer with a specialist interest in Japanese cultural studies. www.inpraiseofthefold.com
Being a member of a family who has always grown fruit and vegetables, seasonal eating has always been a familiar concept to me. The four seasons in the UK are reflected in the crops eaten. For example, rhubarb, leeks and broad beans are eaten in spring. In summer new potatoes, salad vegetables, courgettes, beans and blackcurrants are enjoyed. Bountiful harvests of apples are eaten in autumn, and sprouts and leafy greens in winter.
One of my favourite things about Japan is the fact that they observe 72 seasons. Based on the ancient Japanese calendar, in which the year is divided into 24 and then 72 separate seasons. This means that a change in the seasons can be noticed and celebrated every 5 days.
When visiting Japan, it is almost impossible not to notice how the seasons are celebrated; from seasonally decorated convenience stores to the images on the ATM machine. And be careful not to blink or you’ll miss some produce only available to buy in the supermarkets for a week or two.
Aside from growing up with green-fingered parents, I come from a culture where if you fancy a punnet of blueberries in the middle of deepest, darkest winter, you can pop to the supermarket and have your craving met. In Japan, fruit and vegetables are usually only available during the time at which they are harvested. One of my favourite fruits, the persimmon, is everywhere for a short spell in October and then they are almost all but gone until the following year. This means that during the brief time in which foods are available, they are celebrated, noticed and are all the more enjoyable because of their fleeting nature.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to a variety of lunches and suppers at different restaurants and friends’ houses. As a child, I was taught to try and always positively comment on the food I am fortunate to be eating. Usually an ‘mmm, this is delicious’ would be sufficient praise and then the rest of the meal could be spent talking and discussing. The food is often secondary to the conversation and company. But I noticed that in Japan, the praise and appreciation for food extends throughout the meal. Food is the important and continual thread within gatherings. At first, I found this peculiar and a little excessive, but over time I came to admire how much appreciation people had for something that I had often taken for granted.
It is customary in Japan, even when dining alone, before you begin a meal to hold your hands in a prayer position and say “itadakimasu” which means “I gratefully receive” and when you finish you will end with “gochisosama (deshita)” which translates into “Thank you for the meal”. I was taught that the sentiment behind these phrases had almost nothing to do with religion but rather to give thanks to all the people and resources that have been involved in the process of getting the food onto your plate.
This practice soon became habitual to me and I tried to carry it on when I returned home to the UK but was met with some confused reactions. Instead, I now try to pause before starting a meal, to take note, to appreciate, to smell, to notice colours and presentation and experience the sensation of taste and the feeling of food in my mouth.
The changing of the seasons and the foods that we eat are inextricably connected. By keeping an awareness of the changes in seasons and the comings and goings of harvests we can eat in synchrony with our planet. A conversation over a meal with friends and family is a very special thing, but try to always be thankful for and celebrate where your food has come from and value its transience.
Now I have shared these three stories with you, it is clear to see the thread that runs throughout each of them; to live in this moment. This is a concept that feels so alien to a modern western way of life, and yet forms a part of almost every daily interaction in Japan.
There is an ancient saying in Japan, “Ichi-go ichi-e” which loosely translates as “one time one meet”. The idea is that every encounter and moment is unique and will only happen once in a lifetime, so feel it and be present in it, however challenging or mundane it may be. Embrace this moment for all it is worth because it will be gone in an instant. The only chance of the survival of memories and experiences is through how present you were in that moment.
Living a more considered life and practising what it means to live in each moment is about starting small. You can start now, whatever you are doing, stop rushing, notice the people around you, the space you occupy, the sounds, the weather outside the window, the warm tea in your cup, the new shoots breaking through the cold earth signalling the return of spring. Notice and appreciate these seemingly small things that occupy so much of your life, for there is much to be gained from them.
To share a story is to keep it alive, and I am so pleased to share this little snippet of my Japanese story with you. My hope is that these musings might help you to re-examine the pace at which you move through life and the things you take time to notice, enjoy and experience in the world around you.
