Cinnamomum camphora var linalool
The bark and wood of the camphor tree is steamed to create this multi-purpose essential oil.
Its list of accolades is impressive: Ho Wood oil is a proven analgesic and anti-inflammatory, which means it relieves pain and irritation when applied topically. It’s anti-bacterial, so it helps to relieve the BO smell that derives from bacteria growing in your underarm.
Ho Wood oil is also an immunostimulant, meaning it supports your immune function. This is especially handy in a deodorant, as our underarms house our lymph nodes, which are a key component of a healthy immune system.
Having a stressful day, and sweating a little more than normal as a result? Ho Wood Oil has a sedative nature, making its scent soothing. Isn’t it nice to know that calm will be radiating from your armpits during difficult times?
