This essential oil is steam distilled from the heartwood of Wildcrafted Cedar Virginia trees grown in the Southern States of the USA. These trees are also known as Red Cedar, Eastern Red Cedar, Virginian Juniper, Eastern Juniper, and Red Juniper.
As well as being employed in aromatherapy, Cedarwood virginia essential oil is used extensively by the perfumery industry in fragrance formulations for soaps, hair shampoos, aftershave lotions, men’s fragrances, deodorants, air fresheners, floor polishes, disinfectants and sanitation supplies.
Symbolizing the tree of life and known as the ‘medicine tree’, the wood was believed by some tribes to have been blood-stained by a powerful magician and it became sacred to them. It was burned in rituals, purification ceremonies and sweat lodges to drive away negative spirits and bring prophetic visions.
It comes in a professional glass amber bottle with dropper so you can easily use it in your diffuser or oil burner with ease without oil going everywhere.
