Cedarwood Himalayan Essential Oil
Cedarwood Himalayan Essential Oil, also called Tibetan Cedarwood, is grown extensively on the slopes of the Himalayas in Northern India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The ancient Egyptians used Cedarwood Oil for embalming, and in cosmetics and perfumery, and in India it is still used for its anti-fungal properties.
It is believed to have the following properties: antiseptic, anti-putrescent, anti-seborrheic, aphrodisiac, astringent, diuretic, expectorant, fungicidal, mucolytic, sedative, stimulant (circulatory), and tonic.
Steam distilled from wood, Cedarwood Himalayan has a dry, woody aroma, slightly camphoraceous, smoky, and balsamic with a very subtle hint of spice.
