Ho Wood Oil is steam distilled from the bark and wood of the ho tree. This oil is extremely high in calming linalool and is excellent for promoting a peaceful and relaxing environment. Ho Wood has a woody, floral, and camphorous scent. Its aroma and properties are very similar to Rosewood Oil, which as a threatened species, should be avoided. The camphor content in Ho Wood Oil results in a cooling feeling when used topically.
Blend Ho Wood with Lavender Oil and diffuse to promote deep relaxation. For an uplifting yet comforting atmosphere, blend Ho Wood Oil with a citrus oil such as Bergamot or Grapefruit. For topical use, dilute with a carrier oil and apply to red, itchy areas.
