Did you know that it takes .7 pounds of Cedarwood to produce a 15 ml bottle of CEDARWOOD Essential Oil?
Even more amazing is that we have found a way to distill this amazing oil from byproducts of the lumber industry, making this a waste-free and sustainable sourcing option.
CEDARWOOD is sourced from the Southeastern United States of America, where the red cedar tree shows its amazing strength by withstanding and flourishing under difficult conditions.
CEDARWOOD Essential Oil has three main constituents: cedrol, which gives it it’s calming properties; a-cedrene, which is accountable for its cleansing properties; and thujopsene, which is mainly responsible for the beautiful aroma.
CEDARWOOD’S benefits are many. We are going to be learning all about CEDARWOOD, so let’s get the basics covered.
CEDARWOOD is steam-distilled from the wood of the Juniperus virginiana trees, giving it a nutty, sweet, and woody aroma.
CEDARWOOD can be used topically and aromatically. Dilute for sensitive or young skin. CEDARWOOD is not recommended for internal use and should not be used in that manner.
When paired with other oils, CEDARWOOD is considered an enhancer (an oil that has a hearty, but not overpowering aroma in a blend). CEDARWOOD blends well with Helichrysum, Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine, Lemon, Juniper Berry, Vetiver, Lavender, and Frankincense Essential Oils.
