Cedarwood Virginia: Juniperus virginiana (L.)
Why Cedarwood Virginia? The sweet, mild, balsamic aroma of cedarwood Virginia essential oil has been traditionally used in Native American culture to encourage deep, cleansing breaths. In addition to inhalation, cedarwood Virginia is commonly applied to skin to provide a tender, soothing experience.
Quality Assured: Our cedarwood Virginia essential oil is responsibly sourced from the USA. The essential oil is distilled from the wood shavings by-product at sawmills that process Virginia cedarwood for veneer preparation. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
