Take a deep breath in, savor the peace that floods over you, and with a cleansing exhale push out all of the negative energy within. Cedarwood essential oil brings that peace and relaxation that we so covet in our everyday hustle and bustle. We use the oil in our peace clean (along with Rosemary and Lavender) to achieve an environment that is calming, full of focus, and devoid of stress.
For centuries the oil has been touted for its ability to elevate our mood and keep us grounded, alleviating tension and boosting our nervous system. Historically it was used in this way as both an incense and perfume, and was even the oil of choice by the Egyptians in the embalming process. It has an earthy smell and a warmness to it. The oil can be safely diffused or rubbed directly onto the skin.
While its strongest use is of that above, the oil also has strong diuretic properties and is useful in the treatment of bladder infections and boosting overall kidney function. Some have found it to be beneficial in the topical treatment of skin acne as well.
