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.

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.

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.

Smells like a forest

It has a forest-like smell that I just love. It's my favourite scent to use in the toilet.

Beautiful oil, great quality.

Before purchasing this oil, I was never sure what true cedarwood smelled like on its own. It is a fresh scent, rather sharp in the back of the nose, with a woodsy base (obviously). It reminds me of crystal and incense stores I used to visit on holiday in Raglan and Onemana.

Strength: 3.5/5

Colour: Light yellow; may change the colouring of waxes, oils, or butters you combine it with.

Overall, a beautiful oil which I plan to use in the beard oils I will make for family members this gifting season. Cedarwood is thought to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss, so I look forward to the response I get from family members. Will be sure to share on here!
