When we talk about essential oils for sleep and relaxation, we often think about lavender, jasmine, sandalwood, rose, and geranium. But, have you ever heard of Ho Wood? Never? Well, you're in for a big surprise!
The name may sound alien to you but the scent? Not so much. Known as the camphor laurel or the true camphor, this oil has a decidedly familiar scent because of its link to the evergreen tree. Native to Eastern Asia, it has an extremely high linalool content which makes it great for creating a serene and relaxing atmosphere. Diffuse to destress in the evening and wind down for bed. Try using it with Lavender, Bergamot, or Cedarwood and you'll love the scent even more. In fact, it blends beautifully with a lot of oils!
The strong camphor content also makes Ho Wood an excellent antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and immune stimulant. If your skincare routine needs a bit of sprucing up, now is maybe the best time to incorporate Ho Wood. Great for mature and sensitive skin, it's known to encourage cell growth, prevent skin ageing, and alleviate various skin problems!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
