History: Ho Wood became popular in Taiwan during the 1900’s as a linalool rich product from the Camphor tree. Locally it was referred to as Shiu oil. It didn't gain commercial popularity until approximately 1985 when a major explosion at a Linalool producing facility greatly decreased available supply making Ho Wood a natural replacement.
