Cedarwood oil is a versatile oil, which has been used by many cultures throughout history. It has been appreciated for as many spiritual and mood-enhancing benefits as it has been for its benefits to the physical body. Cedarwood is used to encourage a feeling of peace, along with mental clarity and focus, while physically promoting relaxation of the overall body. Some studies have shown Cedarwood to aid the immune system due to its natural abilities to lower stress. Since the 18th century, it has been studied for numerous therapeutic benefits, from its ability to promote intestinal and kidney health to its usefulness in treating respiratory conditions. Cedarwood has also been noted for its anti-inflammatory properties in alleviating painful joints and muscles, and for its antiseptic properties in promoting healthy skin. Ancient Egyptians used it in the embalming process; ancient Greeks used it to repel bugs; Some Native American tribes used it to enhance spiritual communication and overall protection.
Topically*: The astringent characteristics of Cedarwood give it a valuable role in shampoos and in moisturizers to encourage clear and healthy skin; dab on the back of the neck to encourage focus; add to massage oil for promoting relaxation and inner peace.
* Pure essential oils are very potent. We strongly recommend diluting them when applying topically to avoid any potential skin sensitivities. Please refer to our Essential Oil Safety Guidelines for more information.
