This oil is extremely high in calming linalool and is excellent for promoting a peaceful and relaxing environment. Ho Wood is sweet, fresh, woody and slightly floral smell and is the perfect substitution for rosewood. Its aroma and properties are very similar to Rosewood Oil, which as a threatened species, should be avoided.
The camphor content in Ho Wood Oil results in a cooling feeling when used topically. Ho Wood became more popular in 1985 when a major explosion at a linalool-producing facility greatly decreased the available supply, which launched Ho Wood as a natural and sustainable replacement.
