Like a walk through a Minnesota forest. This oil behaves well when using it in soap. The scent lasts and is easy to work with. A very good seller for me.

This oil is exemplary! I had some bumps above my elbow for a couple years at least. I wasn't sure what they were as they sort of looked like warts and were multiplying but Im not really prone to them nor was any ointment working. I tried other essential oils and creams but nothing worked. Then I decided to try this thuja oil. I understand that thuja should be cut but I used it neat a couple times a week directly on the area and within those two weeks the bumps disappeared! My skin was a bit dry as it can be harsh but the results were exemplary! And two months later they still have not come back and my skin is fine.

Sharp top note, not earthy like cedarwood. Reminds me of a cross between ctirus and camphor, but not overbearing. Great quality and price!

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.

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.

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.
