About Ho Wood
- Previously used for Samurai swords and knife handles because it would not scratch the fine blades, this elegant wood is thought to be native to Japan.
- As an aromatic it is very popular in the East, and its leaves give us the increasingly popular Ravintsara Oil. It should be noted that Ravintsera is not the same as Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica), which is from a different species (see Ravensara Essential Oil).
- In Taiwan, this oil is known as Shiu Oil, and it gained popularity in the 20th century when it was discovered to contain a good amount of linalool. In the 1980s, it became available in the market as a natural substitute for linalool.
