How to Make Red Wood Cedar Fragrance Oil


Woody fragrances are often a bit masculine and offer pleasant accents to shampoos, homemade soaps, candles and a variety of other products. Making your own woody fragrance oil of redwood and cedar allows you the opportunity to experiment with a variety of essential oils to create an intoxicating, woody fragrance blend. Whether you're making outdoorsy candles, manly shaving balm or air-freshening fragrance spray, redwood cedar fragrance oil provides a strong and attractive aroma.

Add the Gaea and spruce essential oils to the bottle.
