What the heck do you use Cedarwood oil for?
I had just received a free bottle with my July order and I didn’t know what to do with Cedarwood oil. However, the best part about being on this essential oils journey is learning about each oil. Even the woodsy ones.
What’s it used for?
According to the DoTERRA website this oil can help relieve tension, act as a natural insect repellent, and be used as part of your daily facial cleansing. The oil can be diffused if you are having a stressful day and applied topically if diluted.
I also looked up Cedarwood oil in the Modern Essentials: A Contemporary Guide to the Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils app and found that cedarwood can also help with urinary tract infections, tuberculosis, fungus, coughing, and congestion.
According to The Healing Power of Essential Oils by Eric Zielinski, D.C. you can combined cedarwood with sandalwood and valerian to make a sleep blend. Will learn about sandalwood and valerian later. One oil at a time here.
Cedarwood has a wonderful smell to it. Just the smell right out of the bottle brings back memories of taking a walk in the forest. A great oil to use to help clear your mind.
Add four drops to your diffuser. I have a large diffuser and I added eight drops. The smell is strong so I started out small.
I used DoTERRA’s Fractionated Coconut Oil (three drops) combined with two drops of cedarwood oil. I rubbed the oil on the bottom of my feet.
Cedarwood was a nice little oil to learn more about and the great thing about joining DoTERRA are the wonderful free products you can acquire. These free products help you learn about oils that you may never have purchased!
