Virginian Cedarwood has a middle note scent that is stronger than Texas Cedarwood but milder than Atlas Cedarwood. It is frequently used in men’s scents because of its masculine, musky, active, and woodsy aroma. It actually smells like a newly sharpened pencil and sometimes a hint of Sandalwood scent.
Virginian Cedarwood, also referred to as Red Cedar, came from the family of Juniper tree – the pine family or Cupressaceae. This coniferous evergreen grows in a slow pace, as tall as 108 feet. Virginian Cedarwood boasts of having brown cones and reddish heartwood, hence named Red Cedar. The North Americans were the first ones to use it as decorative items, posts, pencils, furniture, and cabinets.

I purchased this oil as an alternative for mosquito repellent. I mixed it with another oil that I purchased, and tried it out for the first time two days ago while I was working in the garage. I’m normally inundated by mosquitoes, but that day, after spraying a tiny amount in the palm of my hand, rubbing it over my exposed body, they did not bother me at all. In fact, when I decided to just spray around the area I was in the following day, no bother. So, either way, it worked. Love it, and I will purchase more so that I can have a larger supply on hand.
