Cedarwood

Is breathing a struggle? Is a short walk between rooms or to the mailbox leave you panting for air?

Cedarwood essential oil is your guardian angel. Often used as a promoter of wellness and vitality, cedarwood oil offers a number of versatile health benefits.

For instance, the oil possesses natural warming properties that helped support the large cedarwood trees from whence it came, which are native to cold high altitudes. This warming ability transfers to the human body, in a sense, aiding respiratory function.

The oil supports healthy and clear skin, while its scent relaxes. Cedarwood?s soothing properties, along with its natural ability to repel insects, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you?re venturing out of doors.

Uses

To fortify respiratory function, add 3-4 drops to your diffuser or breathe in directly. You can also add a few drops to your diffuser simply for relaxation.
For skin health, add 1-2 drops to your daily facial moisturizer and use as normal. Lastly, you can apply cedarwood topically in massage. Simply dilute 1-2 drops with a carrier oil and rub softly over the affected area.

General Methods of Application

Apply diluted for sensitive skin. Aromatically. Topically.

Precautions
Those with sensitive skin should dilute the oil with a carrier oil. Avoid touching the eyes, ears, and other sensitive areas with the oil. People who are nursing, pregnant, or are receiving medical attention should consult their physician before use. Additionally, make sure to store the oil away from children.
