Extracted by steam distillation from crude camphor (the crystalline resin of mature trees), there are several species of Camphor – the Ho Sho variety is used to produce Ho Wood essential oil. This Absolute Aromas Ho Wood oil is 95% Linalol, a gentle and safe, natural constituent. It has a sweet and relaxing aroma, which blends well with Cedarwood, Bergamot, Lavender and Geranium. Absolute Aromas does not stock Rosewood for ethical reasons (it is a Brazilian rainforest tree and therefore an endangered species); because of its high Linalol content, Ho Wood can be considered as an alternative. To create a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere, try adding 3 drops of Ho Wood, 1 drop of Lavender and 2 drops of Bergamot to a burner or diffuser.
