Description: Ho wood is a light, pleasant essential oil that may be one of the best kept "secrets" in the essential oil arena. If you have never tried it, you may want to consider doing so. Its aroma is reminiscent of Rosewood, and would be a beautiful addition to add to the essential oil lover's collection. Ho Wood is sometimes used as a substitute for Rosewood.
Ho Wood essential oil is extracted from Camphor Tree wood and bark. This is the same tree that produces the leaves that Ravensara Essential Oil comes from. Ho Wood is high in linalool and is regarded as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. It is also considered to be great for the skin.
