Blood Cedarwood comes from the juniper family and is a beautiful, tenacious oil. It holds floral oils for over 600 hours. I have a Tiare Absolute and Blood Cedarwood blend that has been holding down the fort for three years and counting. Still as delicious as the day I made it. Truth be told, I think it’s better. Blood Cedar is impressive on looks alone. The deep garnet – ruby color is striking and lends itself well to aging which is why I buy a kilo a year to do just that. I’m rather excited to see where the scent profile lands in ten years. In clinical aromatherapy use, Blood Cedarwood may heal scars and wounds quickly plus help with grounding an anxious soul. In natural perfumery application, it’s that indispensable base note and should be in every perfumer’s organ.
Suggested uses: Blends beautifully with Sandalwood, Vetiver and Patchouli. Heavy florals can be added to a Blood Cedarwood blend for a smoky, rich wood profile to the blend and work as a fixative for middle and top notes. Superb oil meditation and chakra anointing. Great for incense and can be used to help wounds heal. Also may ease hypertension.
