Cedarwood Essential Oil Virginian CAS 8000-27-9

Virginia Cedarwood Oil is a pale yellow to slightly orange-yellow colored oil which, on rectification, will yield a water-white, oily liquid. It is slightly less viscous than Atlas or Texas cedarwood oils and it does not deposit crystals at ordinary temperatures. The odor of Virginia cedarwood oil is at first oily-woody and almost sweet, mild and pleasant, somewhat balsamic and typical of cedarwood (lumber). The odor becomes drier and more woody, less balsamic as the oil dries out on a perfume blotter (Texas cedarwood oil smells sweeter as it dries out).
