Ho Wood

Ho Wood-  AroMeds Cinnamomum camphora ct linalool is steam distilled wood, bark and leaves ethically wild-harvested in China. It has a clean, woody, floral aroma...slightly rosy. Ho Wood is commonly used as a substitute for rosewood, because of its similar aroma and therapeutic qualities, and also because of its sustainable growing/harvesting practices. (AroMed chooses to not carry rosewood).
