Hi, does anyone happen to know where I can get some of this oil for testing? It's also sometimes called Alaska cypress or Yellow cedar. I know that White Lotus Aromatics sell it but their minimum order is $100. Northwest Aromatics also sell it but their minimum order is $70. I'd only be happy to order that much if I had tried a sample first. If you don't know where I could buy a small amount but happen to have some spare, I'd be happy to buy or exchange it for oils that I have. I won't hold my breath as it seems to be quite an uncommon oil. Cheers.
Hi pkiler, that was the $70 minimum that I was referring to. I asked them if they could sell me just the Nootka oil and they said that they could but that I would still have to buy five bottles. It's beyond my budget for now because I have several other oils to test. I only need a few drops for testing really. Perhaps I could ask White Lotus Aromatics if they could overlook their $100 minimum for a small surcharge.
Do you happen to have tried it yourself? If so, could you possibly tell me which cedar oil it is most similar to? I think that there are a few pencil cedars, like Juniperus virginiana, Calocedrus decurrens, Juniperus Bermudiana etc. With it being a cypress, perhaps I could substitute with a more commonly used cypress. Thanks.
