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.
