ARBORVITAE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Meet the essential oil from the “tree of life.” Native to Pacific Southwest Canada, Arborvitae is a majestic coniferous tree that is valued for an array of unique benefits. The chemical components found in the Arborvitae resin give it powerful preservation properties that keep its wood from rotting. For this reason, Arborvitae essential oil is often used in wood crafting and for treating and protecting wood surfaces. This amazing oil can also be used topically for cleansing both skin and surfaces. When diffused, its warm and woody aroma is perfect for creating a calm or grounding environment.
ARBORVITAE PRODUCT USES AND BENEFITS
Because Arborvitae trees have powerful resistance to decay and insect damage, even fallen Arborvitae trees can remain sound for over 100 years. Their wood can still be salvaged for roofing and other wood products.
Arborvitae (Thuja plicata) is a needled evergreen that is commonly found around Canada’s Pacific Southwest. This tree is characterized by its reddish-brown bark, horizontal branches, and scaly dark green vegetation with upright brown cones. The Arborvitae tree can reach up to 100–200 feet in height and is known as the largest tree in the cypress family. Because of their incredible resilience, the Arborvitae tree often lives to be 400–1000+ years old. Arborvitae essential oil is steam distilled from the tree’s resin.
