Fragrance Friday Vol. 7: Cedar

Fragrance Friday Vol. 7: Cedar

Cedar is a widely used ingredient in perfumery. Known for its fresh woody notes, cedar is derived from the green leaves of the tree, steam-distilled and the oils used across a range of fragrance applications. 

I love woody fragrances and have a large cedar tree in my backyard--that beautiful smell scents my home during the holidays when I cut down boughs and hang them up. 

Cedar is known for it's calming and soothing properties in aromatherapy and give a gorgeous base upon which to build a fragrance. Our Sanctuary, Homebody and Slow Jam candles contain varying degrees of cedar.
