Arborvitae Thuja plicata pure essential oils
Arborvitae Essential Oil has a wonderful and very deep, earthy aroma. Arborvitae has been used for millennia and is commonly hailed as the essence of the "Tree Of Life".
The tree became a valuable asset when it was discovered that a tea made from the bark and leaves cured scurvy. The essential oil of the Arborvitae tree is just as amazing with its many therapeutic properties. Its strong aroma makes it perfect for diffusing to clean and purify the air.
The arborvitae is an evergreen tree or shrub from the cypress family. They are found primarily throughout eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. The arborvitae has scale-like leaves that are soft to the touch, rather than prickly. Arborvitae prefers colder climates to warmer ones.
Arborvitae plays an important role in the wild. Its leaves are one of the most popular evergreens eaten by deer and other mammals during the winter. The dense canopy of an arborvitae tree provides cover for birds and mammals year-round. Arborvitae, when allowed to, may reach thirty feet tall and ten feet wide. Arborvitae grows best in moist soils with an alkaline pH level.
They are also adaptable to poor soils that are rocky, sterile, dry or wet. Arborvitae will also grow, though not as well, in soils that are neutral or have an acidic pH level. They can be planted anywhere that has full to partial sun, and require minimal aftercare. Found in zones three to seven, the arborvitae plants will not thrive in southern regions.
