Few will deny the uplifting power of the warm and woodsy aroma of Cedarwood. Once distilled, Cedarwood Essential Oil boasts of one of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes, an active ingredient that studies shows helps to calm and soothe the nervous system.
Legend has it that Cedarwood may be one of the first actual essential oils extracted and used. History tells of uses for skincare, preservation and mummification, and using it to uplift mood and help sleep. Cedarwood mixes well with Bergamot, Cypress, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Lemon, Lime, Lavender, Rose, Neroli and Rosemary.
Topical: Adding to lotion or your favorite toner helps to discourage blemishes and encourage healthy and supple skin. Add 1 drop Cedarwood to 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil or lotion. Topical concentration should be a maximum of 5% (7 drops to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil).
Diffuser: Cedarwood can be used separately or together with other oils to create a soothing and calming atmosphere. In general, Cedarwood is considered appropriate for use with all ages.
Household: Cedarwood adds a nice, clean aroma to all your household cleaning recipes.
