Plant Therapy Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil

The warm, woodsy smell of cedar is familiar to most of us. Cedar wood often used to create cedar chests or to deter moths and bugs from dresser drawers and closets with cedar chips. Then again, your memories of cedar may simply be the warm, toasty smell of cedar logs crackling in a fireplace. 

Whatever your memories of cedar, this aroma likely brings up comforting, cozy memories for you. That’s because cedarwood has a dry, slightly sweet, woody aroma with hints of spicy balsam that inspires a feeling of calm and contentment. 

Throughout history, Cedarwood Essential Oil has been used by various cultures, such as Native American and Tibetan communities, to address ailments ranging from minor discomforts, including coughs and hiccups, to more severe illnesses. The seemingly endless uses of the Cedar tree have made it a popular tool in many forms of medicine, art, perfumery, and more.

In aromatherapy, Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil is known for its sweet and woody fragrance, which is warm, comforting, and sedative — a natural stress-reliever! It improves the mental activity and focus, relaxes the body while enhancing concentration, eases stress and tension, and clears the mind. Thanks to these properties, Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil is often used in blends intended to promote sleep. 

When used cosmetically on the skin, Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil can help to soothe dry, irritated, red, and itchy skin. It helps to regulate the production of sebum, which contributes to acne. It will also help to gently reduce breakouts and may even help to reduce signs of aging. 

Cosmetically, Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil is a great friend to men. It helps to stimulate healthy hair growth, reduce thinning hair and slow hair loss, all while enhancing circulation to the scalp. It also tones the scalp, helping to lessen instances of dandruff. 

Around the home, it continues to have many uses. It can be used to deodorize musty rooms, repel insects (especially moths!), and prevent the development of mildew. 

Cedarwood essential oil is also a wonderful support for the respiratory system, especially when congested or inflamed due to seasonal allergies. Support healthy respiratory function during hay fever season by diluting cedarwood essential oil with a carrier oil and rubbing onto the chest or simply diffusing in your office or home.
