If you’re a Melt candle enthusiast you’ve probably noticed that we use cedarwood in quite some the scents we offer. The process of extraction involves steam distillation using the wood parts from the Cedar Wood tree.
It’s one of the most well-known essential oils that you can find in the present, offering a variety of beneficial health and medicinal advantages.
A great scent base, cedarwood is great in softening the spicy spices and calming flowers, and also giving a unique scent.
The most effective method to extract cedar oil from the wood and bark of juniper and cypress conifer and pine trees is by steam distillation.
It is a process that has been refined to produce pure cedar extracts.
Steam distillation is the process of exposing the bark and wood of the cedar wood to high temperatures. Temperature, pressurization, and distillation duration must be to extract the cedar oil.
But, these parameters are adjustable based on the purpose of the product that is extracted.
For instance, the cedar tree is exposed to extreme temperatures for an extended time. The oil that is extracted will contain various chemical compounds, unlike those extracted when at a lower temperature over a shorter duration.
Cedar oil is considered to be one of the most adaptable extracts. It is used in everything including aromatherapy, perfumery, insect repellents, and insecticides.
Despite the many varieties of cedar oil, they all have various chemical compounds. The conifer tree extracts have two identical chemicals, namely cedrol and cydrine.
When looking for cedar-scented scents in perfumes, cedar candles, and household fragrances. We suggest looking for products that contain the natural oil of cedar, instead of just cedrol and cedrine-based compounds.
The presence of genuine cedar oil, which is natural, guarantees an extended and more intense scent.
