Irish Apothecary's Own Brand
100% Pure Essential Oil

Ho Wood Essential Oil has recently been used as a replacement for Rosewood Essential Oil because of its similar chemical properties and applications. 

Ho Wood Essential Oil has expanded in recent years and it now an important source of natural linalool (which is still preferred over the synthetic form) for some fragrance applications in the perfume industry. Indeed, Ho Leaf and Ho Wood oil have largely displaced the use of rosewood as a source of natural linalool. It has also been used an effective insect repellent.
