Humidor Sticky Spots

Spanish Cedar is naturally oily. It’s in the oils where Spanish Cedar gets the rich spicy aroma.

Depending upon how close to the centre of the tree the board has been cut, often the oils can migrate to the surface of your cigar humidor.

The oils can be a bit problematic as it is fairly sticky and can glue your cigar wrappers to the wood.

Though these oils can be cleaned with alcohol, sometimes the sap can be relentless, almost never ending. If the oils continue to be problematic, rub them down with some 400 grit sandpaper periodically until they stop appearing. Although somewhat annoying, the more oils in your Spanish Cedar wood, the more pleasing the aroma will be inside your cigar humidor.
