Cedarwood Essential Oil has an earthy aroma that is soothing and grounding. It is a well documented oil, used by the Sumerians, Egyptians and Tibetans.
Cedarwood oil contains the highest amount of sesquiterpenes.
Sesquiterpenes are a hydrocarbon group that is found in essential oils. They stimulate the limbic system of the brain which helps to elevate our mood and helps us relax (overcome stress). This explains why Cedarwood is relaxing and may help with focus.
We have used Cedarwood essential oil for relaxing before bed time by applying a few drops to the bottom of feet or diffusing in the bedroom.
There are three great Young Living made blends that contain Cedarwood. They are Australian Blue, Sacred Mountain and Highest Potential.
