Essential Oils are the highly concentrated, aromatic and volatile essences of plants, found in their flowers and fruits, leaves and stems, and bark and roots. One of the easiest ways to see this is to press an orange rind, which will release the tangy, orange fragrance from the essential oil of the peel. Often extracted through steam distillation, many oils retain the essence of the plant, which comprise the constituents of their immune systems. Essential Oils are also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, soaps and toiletries, candles and domestic cleaning products.

Cedarwood Himalayan Essential Oil, also called Tibetan Cedarwood, is grown extensively on the slopes of the Himalayas in Northern India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The ancient Egyptians used Cedarwood Oil for embalming, and in cosmetics and perfumery, and in India it is still used for its anti-fungal properties.
It is believed to have the following properties: antiseptic, anti-putrescent, anti-seborrheic, aphrodisiac, astringent, diuretic, expectorant, fungicidal, mucolytic, sedative, stimulant (circulatory), and tonic.
Steam distilled from wood, Cedarwood Himalayan has a dry, woody aroma, slightly camphoraceous, smoky, and balsamic with a very subtle hint of spice.
