Words by Anny Schneider

Very sweet for the skin, the essential oil of Ho Wood (Camphor tree) is regenerating and purifying.

It is used to slow down skin ageing and treat imbalances such as acne, rosacea and other minor dermatosis, ideally diluted in fine vegetable oil (apricot, sweet almond, argan, etc.).

Energising, it has a place of choice in atmospheric diffusion synergies, useful in the event of nervous tiredness or muscle tension due to stress or overload.

It also benefits in a localized soft massage, which is still diluted in vegetable oil.

Origin of this essential oil

This organic essential oil of Ho wood from China is distilled from the wood of the tree.

Suggestions for use

Diluted in 80 to 90% vegetable oil against minor infections, aches and spasms.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
