Cedar Wood Oil

Project Profile
  • Cedar wood essential oil is extracted from Juniperus virginiana of the Cupressaceae family. It is also known as Virginian, red, eastern red or southern red cedar, as well as Bedford cedar wood.
  • The tree is native to North America and grows up to 30 meters (100 feet) and ages up to 1,000 years. This is the tree Solomon used to build the Temple in Jerusalem. Cedrus libani or Lebanon cedar, from which the first essential oil was extracted, is very scarce due to over use.
  • Cedar wood oils each have characteristic woody odours which may change somewhat in the course of drying out. The crude oils are often yellowish or even darker in colour and some, such as Texas cedar wood oil, are quite viscous and deposit crystals on standing. 
  • The oil harvested from J. virginiana is known in the essential oils trade as Virginian cedar wood oil or Cedar wood oil Virginiana and is recovered through the process of partial pressure steam distillation of sawdust, wood shavings, old stumps and chipped logs, materials which would otherwise be considered waste.
  • The oil harvested from J. ashei is known as Texas cedarwood oil. This oil has different uses and does not compete with the Virginia cedar wood oil. The chemical composition of the two oils is similar, but Texas cedar wood oil is used almost exclusively as feedstock for the manufacture of chemical derivatives whereas Virginia cedar wood oil is used primarily in fragrance formulas.
  • Virginia cedar wood oil is widely used in the fragrance industry in soaps, air fresheners, floor polishes, and sanitation supplies. It is also used in deodorants, insecticides, mothproof bags, and janitorial supplies. In addition, a large percentage of this oil is used as a starting material for cedrol and cedryl acetate.
  • The therapeutic properties of cedar wood oil are antiseborrhoeic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, tonic, astringent, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, insecticide, sedative and fungicide.
  • Cedar wood oil benefits the skin by its sedating ability which relieves itching. Its astringent action is great for acne, oily skin, as well as for hair and dandruff. It helps with chest and urinary infections, acts as a general tonic and has a pronounced effect on mucus membranes.
  • It has a calming and soothing effect on the mind and is of great help in conditions associated with anxiety and nervous tension. It is also of value in cases of arthritis and rheumatism.
  • Excluding the People's Republic of China, for which the magnitude of consumption of domestically produced cedar wood oil is not known, the United States, Western Europe and Japan are the major markets for the oil.
  • The red cedar market ranges from small operations with gross annual sales of less than $10,000 per year to large firms with gross annual sales over $16 million.
  • Based on a retail price of $50 per gallon, there is a potential for $520,200 to $ 1,106,062.50 (average of $813,450) of value per year in oils. This wholesale market could provide between $156,060 and $650,625 in base economic activity.
