Botanical Name: Thuja occidentalis
Plant Part: Leaves
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
Description: Cedar Leaf Oil is made from the northern white cedar tree, a small-sized, averaging 12 m (40 ft) high, evergreen. The crown is conical, dense, layered and compact with arching branches. The trunk is strongly tapered, often gnarled with thin red-brown bark. The branchlets are yellowish-green, clad in sheathing foliage, forming flat, fan-shaped sprays.
Color: Colorless to pale yellow clear liquid.
Aromatic Scent: Cedar Leaf Thuja Essential Oil has an intensely sharp and fresh with a woody camphor scent.
Strength of Aroma: Strong
Common Uses: The chemical constituents of Cedar Leaf Oil are said to make it anti-rheumatic, astringent, diuretic, expectorant, repellent to insects, a stimulant to the nerves, uterus and heart muscles, tonic and a vermifuge. Thought to be useful in steam baths for rheumatism, arthritis, congestion and gout, it has traditionally been used as a wash for swollen feet and burns. It was commended as a medicinal in treating scurvy as late as the 1900's. Cedar Leaf Oil is used today in pharmaceutical products for its therapeutic properties, as well as in perfumes, toiletries, cosmetics, soaps and detergents for its aromatic properties.
History: The Canadian forest, where Thuja Occidentalis originated, is a green band which is over 6,000 kilometers long and up to 3,000 kilometers wide in some areas, and is mainly comprised of coniferous trees. Also known as Northern White Cedar and Eastern Arborvitae, it grows near fresh water.
Cautions: Taken in excess, this essential oil can produce unpleasant results; it was officially listed as an abortifacient (a drug or agent causing abortion) and convulsant in overdose. It is considered to be toxic, causing hypo tension (low blood pressure), and convulsions. Fatalities have been reported. Do not use during pregnancy. Do not use without medical supervision.

Sharp top note, not earthy like cedarwood. Reminds me of a cross between ctirus and camphor, but not overbearing. Great quality and price!
Loyal Customer Since: 2005
Nice, woody smell. It doesn't have the sweet note of the arborvitae.

When I opened Cedar Leaf (Thuja) it reminded me of the aroma coming from my Native American cedar flute! Curl your toes good! I've since blended it in smudge that I make and with shea butter. I just love it.
Loyal Customer Since: 2009
I wasnt sure what to expect from this, something along the lines of my grandmothers cedar chest maybe but I was suprised to find that it has a very mellow almost floral smell to it. I like it alot, it will be going in a few blends right away.

Very fresh! Great in incense and with mint essential oils.

I bought this oil along with Texas Cedarwood to use in an insect repellant blend that would be safer for my pets than what is commercially available, and it was very effective. This oil differs from the cedarwood that I bought in a few ways. First, the cedarleaf is definitely a top note, whereas the Texas Cedarwood is a base. Both were less camphorous than what I expected, although the cedarwood is certainly the milder of the two. Also, contrary to the description, cedarleaf seems mildly narcotic or sedative when inhaled - perhaps this is the hypotensive aspect. Finally I would say that contrary to my own expectations, this oil blends reasonably well, esp. with frankincense and other wood and spice notes. I personally did not care for blends made with citrus notes, as they were a little "top" heavy.
