Main Constituents:
Cedrol: 26%
Thujopsenene: 34%

Its constituent, cedrol, may cause the oil to crystallize. The melting point of cedrol is 86º Celsius, so by gently heating crystalized oil, the cedrol liquefies and its solubility is improved for a period of time. It may re-crystallize again in cooler temperatures.

I love the spring time scent of fresh cedar mulch being spread under all the trees in our yard. Well they bottled it up right here! I prefer this Cedarwood to all the others I have as well in my collection. It contains the same therapeutic properties but has a strong, clear cedar scent. I use it to calm the dog during a thunderstorm by adding one or two drops to his collar (on the side NOT touching his neck) or diffuse it in the bedroom when we've had a long or tough day. Cedar woods has so many uses but those are the two main uses in our house. Very calming, very woody scent. A little goes a very long way. If I could give this one higher than 5 stars, I would.

Smells good in the bottle, very hope-chest-ish. This is the strongest of the Cedarwoods I tried (Himalayan, Atlas Organic, Virginian). Note it is a Juniper, along with the Virginian, and they smell quite different than the Himalayan and Atlas. Diffused - smells Horrid - like locker-room B.O. For Diffusion I highly recommend the himalayan and atlas.

Another great essential oil from New Directions Aromatics. Cedarwood is one of my least favourite scents mainly because it never quite smells like expect. It's usually dustier smelling and doesn't capture that fresh cut quality. As another reviewer noted, this one is really a juniper. If you are familiar with juniper, you might notice that quality immediately. However, I still smell cedar quite strongly here but mixed with that juniper quality, it mimics the smell of a hope chest more closely. Fresh, pleasantly strong but not overpowering. I know I can make good use of this oil.

So many kinds of cedar to try... This one is the first one that I tried and it's not exactly what I was expecting. It's not a strong scent and you'll need a lot to perfume your soaps.

I had some challenges deciding on the right Cedarwood and am delighted that I finally settled on Cedarwood Texas. I love this oil. And of course the price is right for my budget. Cedarwood is my 2nd best addition to the bug repellent sprays that I made. My friends love it.

Smoky and deep noted, many clients appreciate this version of "cedarwood" although it's really a juniper!

this cedarwood is a toned down version of the virginian cedarwood. very nice, not so "sharp", and goes wonderfully with lavender and tea tree in a facial cleanser. Excellent value!

As well as the other cedarwood varities, this one is highly valued as a great ingredient in insect repellents, as I use it it my Bug-Off blend. It is similar to Virginian Cedarwood. Use for acne, arthritis, bronchitis, congestion, coughs, eczema, greasy hair, insect repellent, nervous tension, oily skin, psoriasis, rheumatism, sinusitis. Also known as Juniperus mexicana, Mexican Cedar, Mexican Juniper, Mountain Cedar, Rock Cedar.
