Product Information



Cedarwood Virginian Essential Oil is a popular essential oil used in aromatherapy and personal care due to its unique and comforting woody scent. This oil is extracted from the wood of the Juniperus Virginiana tree, a slow growing evergreen tree that is commonly found in North America, and has very dense branches that can reach up to 20m high.

The oil is extracted using the steam distillation method, which ensures that the oil retains its natural purity and therapeutic properties. The warm and grounding aroma of Cedarwood Virginian Essential Oil makes it an excellent choice for promoting relaxation, soothing the mind and body, and creating a peaceful environment. It’s a popular essential oil to use in products formulated for men due to its woody, outdoor scent.

Cedarwood Virginian Essential Oil is a popular choice for its numerous benefits which have been known to;

  • Create a peaceful and restorative environment with its clarifying, healing, and relaxing properties. Its calming effects on the mind and body make it an ideal choice for use during meditation and yoga sessions.
  • Support healthy skin with its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Its soothing effects can help to alleviate irritation, reduce blemishes, and promote a clear and healthy complexion.
  • Antifungal and antibacterial properties help to promote healthy hair growth, as well as keep the scalp clean and free from dandruff.
  • Naturally repel insects with its distinct and powerful aroma, making it an excellent addition to insect repellent products.
  • Cedarwood Virginian can be added to a massage oil or carrier oil base to help boost circulation, flush toxins and ease aching muscles.

Overall, Cedarwood Virginian Essential Oil is a versatile and highly beneficial oil that is well-suited for use in a wide range of personal care and wellness products. Its warm and woody aroma, combined with its natural healing properties, make it a popular choice for anyone looking to promote relaxation, reduce stress levels, and promote healthy skin and hair.

Cedarwood Atlas has a slightly sweet and spicy aroma, with a rich woody undertone, reminiscent of cedar lined chests. Cedarwood Himalayan on the other hand is a little sharper, with a balsamic, honeyed note.

  • Essential oils should be kept out of reach of children and pets.
