Single Essence of Blood Cedar (Virginia)
Juniperus virginiana • essential oil • USA
10mL (undiluted) in amber bottle with gift box
Virginia Cedar (Blood Cedar) oil is a byproduct of the US lumber industry. It is a familiar musky, oily wood scent that enhances blends and creates a forest anywhere you wish. It is recommended to dilute this to 1% in carrier oil or grain spirits for use as personal fragrance. A few drops can also be used in an oil burner/diffuser to create a dark wood atmosphere. Perfect for anointing candles and protection magic.
*Contains Cedrene which is an allergen for some - always test a small amount first.
