Deodar cedar, or just "deodar" (the name used in its native India), is a large stately conifer with horizontal spreading branches and a conical shape. It can grow to 150 ft. tall with a 40 ft. spread at ground level. Deodar is native to the Himalayas, where it grows at elevations of 3,500 to 12,000 ft. above sea level.
Cedarwood Essential Oil has an earthy aroma that is soothing and grounding. The Egyptians used cedarwood in the embalming process and as a perfume ingredient. Often cedarwood essential oil is steam distilled from the foliage, wood, and conifers of the tree. This particular essential oil has been hydro distilled. This process is similar to steam distillation but allows for a shorter distillation time and is especially useful when dealing with woody substances.
