Cedarwood Chinese Essential Oil


An evergreen tree or shrub with a wide distribution in Guizhou, Gansu and Sichuan provinces in the People's Republic of China. Chinese oil has a lower cedrol content than American oil and is used more in its own right as fragrance oil than as a source of chemical isolates.

Numerous herbal and pet shampoos and natural repellents contain cedarwood oil as an active ingredient. Fences made from cedar wood posts are still sound after several decades of use. Cedar chests are known to be safe places to store woollen articles and protect them from the ravages of cloth moth larvae.
