Description: Ho Wood oil is steam distilled from the bark and wood of the Ho Wood tree.  Because of this, it is a great choice for relaxation and calm. A middle note in perfumery, it has a mild aroma that is sweet, woody with subtle floral undertones. Because the aroma is quite similar to Rosewood essential oils; and because Rosewood trees are endangered, Ho Wood is commonly used as a substitute to Rosewood essential oil. Ravintsara and Ho Wood oil are both extracted from the Ho Wood tree, Cinnamomum camphora. Ravintsara is sometimes referred to as ‘Ho Leaf’ oil. This is revered for its high content of natural linalool, which is among the highest of all essential oils. Ho Wood is a highly beneficial essential oil. When diffused, it freshens up a room and makes you feel calm. When applied on the skin, Ho Wood reduces inflammation and kills infection-causing germs. Today, Ho Wood oil is a popular choice among aromatherapists, culinarians, and beauticians. Its main chemical components, camphor and linalool, make it useful in a wide range of health and wellness applications. This oil is usually likened to Rosewood. However, while these oils share some similarities, they are not entirely the same. Rosewood has a bit more linalool than the average vial of Ho Wood, which gives it a more pronounced scent. Aromatherapists often use both oils together to strengthen their effects.
