100% Pure & Natural Ho Wood Essential Oil

Botanical Name: cinnamomum camphora ct. linalool

Ho Wood, also known as Ho-Sha is one of the most potent sources of linalool found in essential oils.

This component gives this lovely, versatile oil powerful abilities to calm and soothe emotional and physical ailments.

Ho Wood shares many aromatherapy characteristics with Rosewood, but is a much more sustainable option. At Source Vitál, we have recently updated our formulas to include Ho Wood as a substitute for the endangered Rosewood.  

Uses of Ho Wood Essential Oil

  • Add a few drops of Ho Wood to your toner or cleanser to promote a feeling of balance for oily and acne-prone skin.
  • Ease the feel of achy shoulders or tight neck by diluting a few drops of cooling Ho Wood with a carrier oil. Massage areas of discomfort. 
  • Feeling anxious and tense? Lighten up your environment by diffusing Ho Wood through your aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
  • The slightly camphorous aroma is great to use when feeling congested. Mix 10-15 drops Ho Wood with you favorite carrier oil and add to a therapeutic aromatherapy bath with mineral-rich Dead Sea Salts. Breathe deeply for a sense of clearing.
  • Try Ho Wood, in a carrier or diffuser, as a natural insect repellent.
