Cade is a species of juniper grown in rocky areas across the Mediterranean. Also known as juniper tar, cade oil has antiseptic, antimicrobial and fungicidal properties and has been used since the nineteenth century to sooth skin and scalp complaints such as psoriasis, dandruff and eczema. Cade oil has a strong smoky, woodsy aroma.

Description

Description

Cade oil is produced through distillation of the wood. The distillate is left to sit for 15-20 days after which it will have separated into three layers - a bottom layer of tar, an aqueous layer and the top layer of essential oil, which we use. The oil is a deep reddish brown in colour and is sometimes known as 'nature's coal tar'.
