About Cedar Essential Oil: A symbol of strength, wisdom and abundance, this rich and warmly soft species of cedar is used traditionally in Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicines as an incense ingredient to aid in meditation. Himalayan cedar boasts a rare and powerful combination of qualities that are stimulating to the body but calming to the mind. Himalayan cedar is widely known for its soothing qualities to sore bodies and breath. This woody, delicious oil is a true tree nectar.
Compared with some essential oils, cedarwood has a relatively simple chemical profile, though it has a high percentage of aromatic compounds. As a tonic and calmative to the mind and emotions, it is useful in assisting with the anxious tension created out of our modern non-stop lifestyle when diffused or used in direct palm inhalation. Renowned for its calming and grounding properties, especially during stressful transitions, it promotes emotional equilibrium.
Cedar trees can live to be 1,000-2,000 years old and in their lifetime they have exchanged plenty of “breath.” Cedar is one of our favorite oils used to soothe the lungs during periods of stress and discomfort during the challenging winter months. When you or your children are in need of such relief, combine cedar in your diffuser with some Eucalyptus and Lavender.
Cedar, in its strength and longevity, has long been used to support courageous action, spiritual connection, keen insight and sound judgment. Cedar also has an affinity for both the hair and skin, where it helps to remove lodged toxins and add luster.
How to Use Cedar Essential Oil
