Arborvitae is an essential oil with a woody, earthy, and warm aroma. Because Arborvitae is extremely potent, and has a powerful aroma along with heavy pigmentation, it should be highly diluted to prevent staining. This oil’s primary constituent is Methyl thujate, and it is popular for promoting clear and healthy looking skin when applied topically. Arborvitae is a powerful cleansing oil, making it an ideal addition to home-made cleansing recipes. This oil has traditionally been used as a wood preservative and can also be used as a natural insect repellent.
