Description: Ho wood Essential Oil is extracted using steam distillation of crude Camphor resin.
Common Uses: Ho Wood Essential Oil has recently been used as a replacement for Rosewood Essential Oil because of their similar chemical properties. It has many similar applications and is considered both stimulating and relaxing to the mind. Ho Wood is also reported to have anti-depressant, anti-microbial, anti-septic, aphrodisiac, and bactericidal properties. There are also claims that it can play a role as a cellular stimulant, cephalic, and tissue regenerator. Ho Wood is also commonly broken down by its aromatic components for resale.
Aromatic Scent: Ho Wood Essential Oil has a woody, floral scent that has sweet and camphoraceous notes.
History: Ho Wood became popular in Taiwan during the 1900’s as a linalool rich product from the Camphor tree. Locally it was referred to as Shiu oil. It didn't gain commercial popularity until approximately 1985 when a major explosion at a Linalool producing facility greatly decreased available supply making Ho Wood a natural replacement.
