- This Cedarwood Himalayan Essential Oil is yellow and viscous with a warm floral top note, a camphoraceous middle note and sweet, woody, balsamic undertones. Its woody-sweet warm aroma blends well with Bergamot, Cypress, Juniper, Clary Sage, Rosemary and Ylang Ylang.
- The aroma of Atlantic Cedarwood is brighter (a little more prominent in the higher notes) and smells more like a traditional cedar chest, while Himalayan Cedarwood is softer (fuller in the middle notes). We also carry Texan and Virginian Cedarwoods, which are actually from the Juniper family though they also have distinct Cedarwood aromas.
Product Abstract: Also called Tibetan Cedarwood, the Himalayan Cedar is a tall, evergreen tree that grows up to 50 meters or more in height. It grows extensively on the slopes of the Himalayas in northern India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Aromatic cedar chests have always been used to store woolen articles.
Himalayan cedar essential oil has a high sesquiterpene content which stimulates the limbic system (our center of emotions and memory) as well as the pineal gland (which regulates sleep and dreams). These actions likely the cause of its use as a spiritually grounding scent and an aid for meditation.
Yet Cedarwood oil is also considered fortifying and strengthening and is noted as a tonifier of the kidneys, spleen and pancreas. It is included in blends to enhance one's overall energy and to support adrenal function.
Generally non-toxic, non-sensitizing and non-irritant. Always test a small amount first for sensitivity or allergic reaction.
