Cedarwood oil is a natural component of wood from the tree, Juniperus virginiana L.. It is an active ingredient in five pesticide products that are used as repellents and feeding depressants to control moths and fleas and retard the growth of mildew. Three of these products are solid cedarwood blocks used to repel moths from clothing and retard mildew growth on fabrics. The other two products, which contain extracted cedarwood oil, are a pet tag or collar and a liquid sprayed on animal bedding. Cedar also is a major component of many non-pesticidal consumer products currently marketed in the United States.
