Cedarwood is a woody-scented essential oil. It has been around for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Egyptians, and is thought to be one of the first essential oils ever extracted.
Cedarwood has a wonderful earthy fragrance that makes it popular with aroma therapists as it is known for its uplifting benefits and sedation effects. It will relieve itching and dry skin when applied topically, while a steam inhalation will alleviate catarrh and cold symptoms. It has many natural benefits as it can be used as an astringent, an antiseptic, an insect repellent, a diuretic, a sedative and a fungicide. It will calm skin and minds while fighting infections of the bladder and urinary tract.
It is a great oil for cleaning pure wood too as the fragrance complements the furniture and leaves it germ free and buffed to a polish.
