Cedarwood Himalayan Cedarus deodora - India
Essential Oil - 50mL
Cedarwood oil is obtained by the steam distillation of wood chips. This oil is lightly viscous and has a medium brown colour. Cedarwood oil adds depth and sweetness to other oils, and works to blend other oils together smoothly. Good partners are Rose, Bergamot, Jasmine, Neroli, Juniper, Lavender, Ylang Ylang I and Patchouli. Cedarwood oil is best described as earthy and sweet. It must be used in moderation and is best when used as a background for other oils. Cedarwood oil has a reputation as an effective insect repellent, but it also stimulates sexuality, and is beneficial for the respiratory system.
