Spend a night sleeping under the stars in the Mojave Desert or Eastern Sierra and you may wake up with frost on your sleeping bag, the air crisp and cold. But as the sun crests the horizon and falls on the red bark and small, deep green leaves of the surrounding junipers and cedars, the air is perfumed with a sharp and sweet scent. Redolent of warm leather and desert varnish–a sun baked mixture of resin, minerals, and clay–this fragrance is at the heart of a love song to this arid landscape: desert cedar essential oil.
