Description of Cedarleaf Oil
Steam-distilled from the leaves and twigs of what is commonly known as “Eastern White Cedar,” an Arborvitae, Cedarleaf oil is mainly produced in the Canadian province of Quebec, as well as the extreme northeastern regions of the USA. Cedarleaf oil’s odor is fresh and sharp, with a camphoraceous nuance that is often compared to herbs such as sage and artemisia. Its dry down is woody and green, retaining a slightly sweet nuance that blends well alongside other minty or camphoraceous ingredients. In fragrance, cedarleaf oil is used for household products, including surface cleaners, aerosol sprays, and disinfectants. The oil is also used in some perfumes, most commonly added to floral, citrus, or herbal fragrance blends. It’s even found within some over-the-counter cold remedies.
