However, it does have similar therapeutic properties and has that wonderful aroma of a cedar chest. In addition to the exceptional fragrance, cedarwood essential oil has wide range of benefits and uses.

ABOUT THE OIL
Cedarwood is one of the most popular essential oils in aromatherapy, loved for it’s deep, rich and tenacious woody, balsamic aroma. Interestingly, Texan cedarwood is actually from trees of the same family as Juniper, yet they has a distinct Cedar aroma. The oil is a deep reddish orange in color, with a rich and full-bodied aroma. Although very similar, Virginian Cedarwood is a little higher-noted than the Texas, which is very rich and full.
In New Mexico the Native Americans use cedarwood oil as a medical treatment for skin rashes.
