Suggested Use:Add a few drops to a diffuser for a relaxing and"grounding"aroma climate. Add 5 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat, mixing the oil with Aromaland's Coconut Emulsifier or some Half & Half prior to blending it with the water (in order to prevent the oils from floating on the surface).

History:The leaves of the Ho Sho variety of the camphor tree are stripped once or twice a year without damaging the tree. The leaves contain practically no camphor notes, which could be irritating, and has a very nice linalool scent. Because of its pure, pleasant aroma it has become popular as a replacement for Rosewood oil.
