The Texan Cedarwood is a small alpine evergreen that grows up to 7 m high. It has stiff green needles and an irregular-shaped trunk. While the tree is native to the southwestern USA, Mexico, and Central America, the main essential oil production is in Texas. The oil is steam distilled from the wood or foliage of the tree and can range from yellowish to dark yellow. Texas cedarwood oil is quite vicious in texture and will deposit crystal upon standing. In many cases, this particular cedarwood oil is put through a refinement process, then used in fragrances formulations, soaps, household spray, cleaners, and insecticides. It finds a home in the aromatherapy and personal care industries, as well.

Woody and masculine. I use it in deodorant and cp soap for men. Makes a great scent combo with bergamot, juniper, and lavender.
A very mellow cedar wood Great for incense sticks and cones! Great to in insect repellent sprays Also great to help get the wet dog smell out of the dog's bed! It is woodsy without being overwhelming. Great EO.
