Cedarwood is possibly the very first essential oil. It has a long history of use as incense and perfume and the Egyptians used it for embalming and in cosmetics. These days it remains popular for its woody masculine scent in men’s colognes and cosmetics, and for its harmonising and balancing effects on the mind and body.
Nature/Essence – Grounding & Harmonising
 
SKIN ICON 72pxFOR THE SKIN
Cedarwood is of great use for oily skin, helping to balance oil production and tone the skin with its astringent and antiseptic actions. These properties also make it a popular hair tonic to promote healthy hair, balance greasy hair or scalp, and address dandruff or hair loss.
 
BODY ICON 72pxFOR THE BODY
Cedarwood is a great oil to use as an inhalation or chest rub to ease congestion, coughs and bronchitis. It has been traditionally used for urinary tract conditions, useful in compresses or baths for cystitis. It also acts as a lymphatic and circulatory stimulant in massage oil blends for arthritis and cellulite.
 
MIND ICON 72pxFOR THE MIND
The woody outdoorsy fragrance of Cedarwood has a grounding effect to calm nervous tension, balance an upset nervous system and promote an open and positive mind. It can be a very helpful oil to diffuse during meditation.
 
HOME ICON 72pxFOR THE HOME
Cedarwood has long been prized for its insect repelling odour and insecticide action, useful in wardrobes and linen storage to keep moths at bay and as a natural insect repellent.

Cedarwood atlas

I'm so gutted. I was really looking forward to this cedarwood chest smelling aroma, it smells like cat urine. it's the worst smell. Tried blending with other oils and its putrid smell shines through.

Hmm

I purchased this to use in body butters and balms to help with joint pain and while the benefits are great, it smells totally gross. W1asnt expecting that but when blended with other oils it isn't bad.

Great for many things!

I have put this oil into my cleanser, face moisturizer, shampoo and conditioner. Mt skin is looking more radiant and hair looks shinier. I also put this directly on my skin this may be too strong for some but for me is fine. My skin is glowing!!
