Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) is one of our most sacred West Coast medicine plants. This Western Red Cedar Oil is a powerful spirit to be used with restraint and respect. A sweet evergreen oil with a mossy, resinous depth that always reminds me of sitting amongst old growth trees. Conjures deep-forest memories and places focus back on what is most important in ones life. Harvested from secret locations at Green Ring Farm, and stream-side areas throughout Oregon. Packaged in violet glass at 20% in a base of fractionated coconut oil.
Thujone, a powerful anti-fungal agent, is often found in this oil. Limit applications to a few drops with intermittent use. May support the resolution of fungal infections. Beautiful for ceremonial use. Creates a sweet west coast addition to any perfume. Trace amounts are useful in berry accords. Acts as a masking (covers off-notes) and rounding agent in perfume blends.*
WARNING: Not intended for internal use. Always dilute this oil. May contain thujone, do not use if you have epilepsy, liver problems, heart or kidney conditions. Not intended for use by pregnant women, nursing women, or children. Keep out of reach of children. Keep out of eyes. Always patch test prior to use.
Our Essential Oils
All of our artisan essential oils are steam distilled from plants that are grown and harvested from the wild areas of Oregon, Washington, California, and Canada. At Ring Family Farm we do not spray our crops with pesticides, and great care is taken with every step of the process. From the baby plants we start from seed, to the plowing of the fields and planting, to the labor of hand weeding, and through to the careful harvest and distillation we are invested with love and care every step of the way. All of our oils are packaged in violet glass to extend shelf-life. We periodically may rely on trusted local artisan distillers for back-up supplies of Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata), "ARP" Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis). "Buena Viata" Lavender, and "Grosso" Lavandin essential oils to meet customer needs. Our lavender oils are sold in 100% pure form, while our other lower-yield oils are offered at 20% in fractionated coconut oil (f.c. oil blends with all other carriers and will also dissolve in alcohol for use in perfumes.)
Ring Family Farm
Ring Family Farm is an island safe-haven for native plants and animals displaced by surrounding clear cuts. We are good stewards to our land, fulfilling a promise to protect the natural world we are lucky enough to grow upon. Nestled in the foothills of the Molalla Mountains, our land supports a wide array of aromatic plants: from rosemary, sages, roses, lemon balm, mints, to many types of lavender and evergreen trees. These fragrant beauties are used in our essential oil distillations and our natural perfume blends. We practice sustainable, organic farming and all of our plants are propagated, planted, maintained and harvested by the Ring family with love.
