Cedarwood Essential Oil

If you love walking in a Redwood forest, you will love Cedarwood. It is an amazing essential oil with a warm, woody, and somewhat balsamic aroma that encourages tranquility and can help you relax at the end of the day. Popularly used in perfume and skincare products, Cedarwood soothes the skin and calms the mind. It’s also a natural bug repellent.

Primary Benefits

  • Naturally repels insects
  • Creates a comforting and relaxing environment
  • Helps to keep skin looking healthy

Let’s talk a little about what you can use Cedarwood for in your life. Essential oils are part of the tree’s immune system which repels insects to protect it from damage. Cedarwood essential oil does the same and naturally repels insects. It could be used to repel insects in your home, garden or on your skin.

If you have ever walked through the Redwoods in California, just north of where I live in LA, you may find that your stress just melts away. The aroma of this essential oil is naturally relaxing and great to calm the chaos of your little ones or help you or them relax and sleep at the end of the evening.

Lastly, Cedarwood has clarifying properties when used topically. It is great to incorporate it into your facial skin care routine to help keep the skin looking healthy and clear. Use a drop on skin blemishes to improve their appearance. 

Clearly, Cedarwood is a versatile oil we can use in everyday life.

Practical Uses

  • After a difficult day, diffuse to create a relaxing experience.
  • During your facial routine, add one to two drops to your facial toner or moisturizer to promote clear, healthy looking skin.
  • Place a drop on a cotton ball and place in closet to keep moths at bay OR
  • Add Cedarwood essential oil to your mulch or topsoil to help keep insects at bay.
  • To keep bugs away during seasons when insects are a threat, you can create your own essential oil bug repellent formula using fractionated Coconut Oil and Cedarwood oil (simply apply to the body before going outside). 
  • When a child wakes up frightened, apply one to two drops to the bottom of their feet to help soothe and calm them

Cedarwood could also help boost GABA Levels, calm red, flaky and dry skin irritation flareups, calm cough and sinus issues, and reduce unwanted bacteria or pathogens in the gums. In fact, Cedarwood has been used for over 400 years by Native Americans for colds and fevers.*

Cedarwood is one of my favorite oils and I am sure you will love it too! AND it happens to be on sale for the entire month of August 2019, so now is the time to try it out.
