Ho Wood is one of the most potent sources of naturally occurring linalool found in any steam distilled essential oil.
Emotionally, given its linalool content, Ho Wood Oil is a "peaceful" oil. It is calming and is a good choice when needing to relax or unwind.
Aromatically, Ho Wood Oil is a beautifully fragrant wood oil that possesses some similarity to that of Rosewood Oil. Due to the endangerment of the rosewood tree, Ho Wood may serve as a suitable aromatic substitute for Rosewood Oil in some applications.
