Port Orford Cedarwood trees are native to a small area of land between California and Oregon, known for its coastal location and abundant forest life, namely Port Orford. This particular wood specimen grown in Port Orford produces an invigorating yet tenacious essential oil from the tree's heartwood. It has a distinctly different aromatic profile compared to other cedar wood oils, which is best described as sweetly woody; notes of pine, fennel, and anise coupled with a balsamic herbaceousness. 

The robust aromatic wood notes of Port Orford Cedarwood are a product of the steam distillation process that only uses the heartwood, and not the leaves (which can confuse even the most knowledgeable woods connoisseur). In fact, Port Orford Cedarwood is actually not a true cedar, being that its botanical name is derived from the genus Chamaecyparis, which is given to the cypress species.  This is why Port Orford Cedarwood is also known as Lawson Cypress, a name that is seldom used, yet technically correct. 

The aromatics of Port Orford Cedarwood essential oil are extremely pleasant, uplifting, and centering.  Consider diffusing for anti-anxiety, grounding and meditation because of its ability to calm the mind, declutter thoughts, and invigorate the spirit.
