Product Abstract: Chinese Cedarwood is an evergreen tree or shrub with a wide distribution in Guizhou, Gansu and Sichuan provinces in China. Aromatic cedar chests have always been used to store woolen articles. This oil generally has a lower cedrol content than the American oil so is used more in its own right for fragrance than as a source of chemical isolates.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
