Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in unique benefits. Our Arborvitae essential oil is sourced from the heartwood of the Thuja plicata tree. It is also known as Western Red Cedar and is native to North America (primarily Canada and the Northwestern United States). This unique source of Arborvitae essential oil contains a distinct chemical profile and is uniquely concentrated in methyl thujate. The sourcing arrangements for Arborvitae oil are done in an innovative, environmentally responsible way through distillation of residual wood materials to ensure no trees are unnecessarily harvested for production.
Native to Canada, all parts of the Arborvitae tree were used extensively by Native Americans for health benefits and for building vessels, totem poles, baskets, and clothing.

Best Life Essential Oils (store manager) –
Arborvitae is just… WOW! It is SO great at boosting your immune system, and making you feel better, words don’t do it justice! When I am performing the Infectious Disease Symphony of the Cells protocol on myself, Arborvitae is roughly 8 layers of essential oil in… and I am always amazed at how I INSTANTLY feel better after I apply Arborvitae! It also seems natural to apply Arborvitae around the glands under my chin, too… and it helps tremendously! (Hopefully that helps you, too!) Whoever named this the “Tree of Life” knew EXACTLY what they were talking about! 🙂
