For centuries, this oil has been treasured for its therapeutic properties and enchanting aroma. Join us as we discover more about this amazing, precious essential oil
Himalayan cedar, scientifically known as Cedrus deodara, is an evergreen coniferous tree native to the Himalayan region. It's renowned not only for its immense size and beauty but also for the valuable essential oil extracted from its wood. The oil boasts a warm, woody aroma with subtle undertones of sweetness, making it a popular choice in aromatherapy and perfumery.
This essential oil carries many benefits when used in aromatherapy. The calming scent has been associated with relaxation and stress reduction, as well as promoting a sense of tranquility. The natural properties can also aid in opening up the respiratory passages, which can help ease congestion. It’s also an excellent insect repellent, making it a valuable addition to natural bug sprays or repellents.
Himalayan cedar thrives in the Himalayan region, which stretches across several countries including India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bhutan. These trees are often found at elevations ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 feet, where the climate and altitude contribute to the development of the unique compounds that make up the essential oil.
Himalayan Cedar from our farm partner mainly grows unaided in the higher altitude areas of the Himalayan Mountains near India. They thrive in their native growing regions and can grow to heights of as much as 50 feet tall.
Because they grow in such high elevation, it’s not always practical to plan for planting and no formal growth models exist. But regular monitoring of the trees and a special selection process mean that these beautiful, sturdy trees will be treasured for years to come.
Harvesting & Processing
The extraction of Himalayan Cedarwood Essential Oil is a meticulous process that demands skill and precision. The oil is primarily extracted from the heartwood of the tree, which is rich in aromatic compounds. The wood is usually aged for a period to enhance the oil's scent and potency. Then, through steam distillation, the essential oil is carefully extracted from the wood chips.
In the realm of essential oils, Himalayan Cedarwood stands as a true embodiment of nature's elegance and wisdom. From the rugged terrains of the Himalayas to the soothing aroma that emanates from its oil, every facet of this tree tells a story of resilience and serenity. Whether you seek relaxation, skincare solutions, or simply an escape to the tranquil mountains, Himalayan Cedarwood Essential Oil is an aromatic companion that carries the essence of the majestic Himalayas.
