Botanical Name: Cupressus funebris

Main Constituents:
Thujopsene: 14.75%
a-Cedrene: 10.19%
b-Cedrene: 3.72%
Cedrol: 10%

Its constituent cedrol may cause the oil to crystallize. The melting point of cedrol is 86º Celsius, so by gently heating crystalized oil, the cedrol liquefies and its solubility is improved for a period of time. It may re-crystallize again in cooler temperatures.

Plant Part: Wood

Origin: China

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, golden yellow to orange or brown liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A middle note of strong aroma, this oil has a sharp, fresh camphoraceous scent.

Blends With: Rosewood, Bergamot, Cypress, Cassia, Jasmine, Juniper, Neroli, Labdanum, Frankincense, Clary Sage, Vetiver, Rosemary, Ylang-ylang.

Product Abstract: Chinese Cedarwood is an evergreen tree or shrub with a wide distribution in Guizhou, Gansu and Sichuan provinces in China. Aromatic cedar chests have always been used to store woolen articles. This oil generally has a lower cedrol content than the American oil so is used more in its own right for fragrance than as a source of chemical isolates.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I purchased this in a large quantity to spray backyard grass for fleas and to make a spray for dogs themselves. This scent is just too overwhelming, especially compared to the product I was trying to duplicate - Wondercide. Wondercide's cedar is fresh and how you would imagine fresh cedar to smell but this cedarwood smells like a campfire. I imagine it's what people are referring to as "bbq" scent. I don't know if it's because of its origin or how it was processed or what but I will not be purchasing the Chinese cedarwood oil again.

On its own this is not a pleasing fragrance to me but it blends well so I am happy with it and you can not beat the amazing price!

I really enjoyed this oil and have used it along with Frankincense, Sandalwood, and Himalayan Cedarwood to make a stunning blend. It's very relaxing and has wonderful qualities for meditation. At times, i will add a top note oil to this (e.g. sweet orange) to brighten the blend slightly. I am very pleased with it.

Definitely no bbq scent here, it's deep and woody, a bit in your face out of the bottle, but mellows out in your blends. I recently started using this oil blended with lavender & litsea in my facial moisturizers & toners and it's fantastic! Performs well with no issues in CP soap and is very nice blended with a little Juniper Berry or Orange 5 fold.

On it's own, personally I think it stinks, but in a few of my scent blends, it smells great. Either way, I always have it in stock.

At first, the smoky grey fragrance freaked me out, but now I combine it with cinnamon bark and others to make magickal incenses. It balances out well with the sweet Cedarwood Himalayan. Reminds me of a mild cedarwood Texas.

I was a little worried about ordering this BBQ scent, but I'm glad I did. I don't smell BBQ. I wonder if people are thinking of BBQ because so many sauces try to add a woody scent and taste. I really wanted a woody oil for my collection, great for light masculine scents. I also wanted it to use in my homemade wood cleaner. This was a great way for me to get that without spending the money for some of the much more expensive oils. I've blended it with tea tree and have rounded it out with different citrus scents and people seem to really love it.

I was a little dissappointed in this oil. When I smelled it, I smelled bbq. I'm glad I only purchased 3.3oz. Hopefully I can blend it into something nice.

A long kept "secret" of essential oil blends, this deep woodsy smell reminds me of burning wood or a rich heavy patchouli note (but more pungent and raw). By itself it may remind you of some type of rubber or leather treatment. This is ideal for blends if you need a deep raw base note that you don't mind infiltrating your blend into the mid-notes a bit.

I agree with Sherif - this does remind me too of Sandlawood quite a bit. Very lovely!

I really love the smell of this. Reminds me of the sandalwood provided by new directions, but with a fresh accent. Excellent for a sporty fragrance. Commonly used in perfumery, especially the cedarwood of Chinese origin. A must. Mixes amazingly with sandalwood for a classic base note. For the price, this is a must.
