Botanical Name: Cupressus nootkatensis
Part: Wild wood
Method: Steam Distilled, stainless steel
Notes: Perhaps known by more aliases than any other Canadian oil, the Alaska Cypress or Yellow Cedar has deep roots in the history of the Nootka tribe. This oil is 10 times stronger than Virginia Cedar with unmistakable smoky notes. Potentially this oil could replace other Cedars in Aromatherapy.
Nootka essential oil is rich in sesquiterpenes. The main components are valencene 15%, nootkatone 2%, nootkatene 57%, carvacrol 6% .
