Cedar Wood oil, Blood Cedar, Virginia

Blood Cedar wood oil is the Best American cedar wood oil period.  Amazing odor and beautiful red color.  A deep, rich cedar wood, smooth yet tenacious.  Should result in a nice color in a final soap product.  It is the preferred heartwood of older trees that gives this rich hue and undeniably superior scent.


The Aroma is oily-woody, slightly sweet, mild and pleasant and somewhat balsamic.


A natural constituent, Cedrol, though virtually odorless will crystalize in aging oils.  However, the Cedrol content is fairly low in Virginia Cedar Wood oil, but a prominent constituent, Cedrene, a sesquiterpene may slowly convert to Cedrol or Cedrenol durning the aging of the oil.


Blood Cedar wood oil is used extensively in aromatherapy, soap making and the perfume industry.  Mixed with Ceylon Citronella it can be used as a mosquito - repelient.


The dry woody character of the oil permits it to blend well with Patchouli, Sandalwood and Vetiver, however Blood Cedar wood oil has been used in the industry as an adulterant for these same oils.


Furthermore, when properly applied Blood Cedar wood oil tends to act as a fixative.
