Arborvitae Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae (Thuja Plicata) is majestic in size and abundant in therapeutic benefits. Arborvitae essential oil has a high content of tropolones, a group of chemical compounds which protects against environmental and seasonal threats and has powerful purifying properties.
This compound also contributes to Arborvitae’s natural insect repellent properties. 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. Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in woodcraft and for preserving natural wood surfaces.
