Essential Oil Spotlight: Cedarwood


Cedarwood essential oil is steam-distilled from the wood of the Juniperus virginiana tree. Its warm, woody aroma has a calming effect.

Historically, cedarwood has been used for its strong antiseptic, diuretic, and insect-repelling properties. The French use it to calm anger and nervous tension as well as treat hair loss, bronchitis, and urinary tract infections.

Cedarwood is commonly used as a sedative and to treat cellulite, tension, tuberculosis, and dandruff. It may also help acne, congestion, and water retention.

Cedarwood essential oil may be used topically or aromatically to benefit the nervous and respiratory systems.
