With natural preservation properties, essential oil from the native Canadian Arborvitae tree acts as a powerful cleansing and purifying agent, while providing a warm, earthy aroma.
Arborvitae Essential Oil is known to be derived from the “tree of life”, Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in unique benefits. Our Arborvitae essential oil is sourced from the heartwood of the Thuja plicata tree also known as the Western Red Cedar and is native to North America (primarily Canada and the Northwestern United States).
This unique source of arborvitae essential oil contains a distinct chemical profile and is uniquely concentrated in methyl thujate. Native to Canada, all parts of the Arborvitae tree were used extensively by Native Americans for topical application of the oil. They also used it for building vessels, totem poles, baskets, and clothing. Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in woodcraft and for preserving natural wood surfaces.
doTerra’s sourcing arrangements for the Arborvitae Essential oil are done in an innovative, environmentally-responsible way through distillation of residual wood materials to ensure no trees are unnecessarily harvested for production of the oil.
