Juniperus Mexicana (Texas Cedar) Wood Oil
The Texas cedar (Juniperus mexicana) is an evergreen, coniferous species of juniper. Trees grow over 20 meters tall and have needle-like leaves. The heartwood is very fragrant, light, durable and can be used for timber. Cedarwood oil is produced by steam distilling the wood, twigs and leaves of the tree, and is used in perfumery, aromatherapy and some insecticides - particularly as a moth deterrent.
