The wood has traditionally been used for the handles of Japanese swords and knives because it is soft and will not scratch the blades. Most often used nowadays for ornamental parts of houses and cabinet making. It is very similar to Rosewood but produced from a much more renewable source.


Oil Specific: None known.
General: As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
