Virginia Cedarwood Essential Oil
Virginia Cedarwood essential oil is actually from a Juniper tree, however the aroma is that of Cedar - woody and smooth, and reminiscent of an old cedarwood chest. Our Virginia Cedarwood oil is a beautiful dark reddish color.
This is a good quality Virginia Cedarwood essential oil. It does not have the more typical "pencil" aroma that most Virginia Cedarwood essential oils have. That is because it is not distilled from the left over wood from the pencil making industry, like other Virginia Cedarwood oils are.
Aromatherapy Uses: Excellent venous decongestant, use for varicose veins, hemorrhoids.
Safety Considerations: Contains ketones. Avoid use with small children, elders, epileptics, pregnant and/or nursing women.
- Smooth stuff Review by Wolfy
Much smoother and sweeter than "white cedar" and definitely not as sharp, though it is very similar and still conjures up the image of pencil shavings when smelled, not overbearing, but it's there. All in all it's a great warm woody scent.

- Beautiful color and smooth Review by Kyara
- I was expecting pencil shavings. But this dark red cedarwood is smooth, round, with a hint of sweetness. It's much more complex than other Virginia cedarwoods I've had. (Posted on 5/4/13)
