    This oil, a/k/a as Eastern Red cedar or Savin, is from the family Cupressaceae and native to N. America.   Although this tree is from this family and not from the family Pinaceae, it is called Virginia Cedar. Its scent is dry, lightly sweet and woody, some say it’s reminiscent of sandalwood. Please do not smell directly from the bottle, use a perfume tester.

    This oil is said to calm nervous tension and states of anxiety, calms the mind.  It’s used as an expectorant in a massage blend (dries phlegm). Recommended for hemorrhoids in a sitz bath. Deters moths and other insects, usually in drawers and closets. Care should be taken that garments do not directly touch wood treated with Cedarwood essential oil.

    Blends well with bergamot, cinnamon, frankincense, rose, sandalwood and rosemary. Its color ranges from barely-there yellow to amber, color will vary from batch to batch.  Flash point: 200F.

    Dry woody notes
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★
    Raymundo Delgadillo (Austin, TX, US) | August 31st, 2015
    I love this oil and use it very frequently. It smells woody, with dry middle notes and a sweet top note. Not quite as woody as other I've purchased before, but very close. Great for manly blends.
    Great value

    I have been using cedar wood more and more in my CP soaps. It blends well with virtually everything. It is also an excellent value. You can't go wrong here.
    Rich, Warm, Long-lasting

    I had used the Atlas Cedarwood e.o. previously and then decided to try the Virginia Cedarwood e.o. I think it has a much nicer warm woodsy scent and seems to have good lasting power in my cp soaps. It is the main scent in my 'man soap' and is a best seller!

    I really like this scent. It is very comparable to Sandalwood but the price is a lot better!!!! I would be interested to compare this with the other Cedarwood that Camden Grey offers.
    Oooohhhh the best ever!

    Combined with sweet orange and a few drop of lemongrass and wow! Awesome. Used in our soap, it smells so fresh and yet manly and yet not over powering for a women. I also made it as a roll-on as I could not get enough of this smell - its Awesome! A must have!
    Nice woodsy scent for the cost

    I combined this with your rose geranium e.o in a CP soap and the result is divine. The two perfectly balance each other out. This is a great priced "woodsy" scent. My customers are always asking for "manly" scents and this one is a winner.
    Excellent depth of aroma

    If you've only ever tried other varieties of cedarwood such as Atlas Cedarwood, you're in for a treat. Virginia cedarwood has a deep, rich aroma, primarily more "foresty" than terpeneous, and this is a luscious example of the stuff: woody scent with satisfying sweet nuances, less like cut wood and more like live trees. Better priced than most, too. I'm really glad to have made this purchase.

    This is an excellent distillation of a very American oil and one of my favorite wood aromas, even if it is affordable. Your VA cedar is comforting and has great warmth; I look forward to seeing how it combines with other fragrances.
    Love It!

    I was afraid to get this one, b/c there were so many positive reviews for the other cedar EO Camden-Grey offers. But I am weird and think inanimate objects have feelings so I tried this Virginia Cedarwood and I am so glad. It smells fantastic. PERFECT for my Christmas soapmaking. And my closets. :)

    This is such a beautiful Cedarwood, I purchased the 4 oz. Has a lovely sweetness to it, and reminds me of cedar shavings; unlike the much sharper Atlas variety. I've gotten both types from you and this one is hands down a keeper and I will indeed be re-ordering more from you. The price is fantastic as well. If your tossing around which one to buy...I'm nudging you to try this one out.

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
