Cedarwood Virginian E.O

Adam Michael has this to say “The aroma of cedarwood Virginian essential oil is Autumn forest fresh, dry-woody, mild, incense woody, ambery sweet with somewhat of a leathery and fine woody-vetivert character.

Useful for sandalwood blends, earthy accords, rich amber bases, and building the woody notes within vetivert compositions. A must for masculine colognes and a good fixative. Golden yellow in colour, of a oily but pourable viscosity and produced from the waste wood by steam distillation.

For the therapist Virginia cedarwood is highly antiseptic and with great astringent properties it is useful for treating oily skin. The active principles include cedrol, cadinene and other sesquiterpenes, and several terpenic hydrocarbons. Virginian cedarwood essential oil could be considered to help relieve muscular tension and used in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism. All types of cedarwood essential oil have been used extensively to ward off insects and rodents. Cigar boxes used to be made of cedarwood for this reason. Great buildings (including Solomon’s temple) used cedar not only because it continues to exhale its fragrance for hundreds of years but also because it is less liable to attack by insects.”
