Cedarwood essential oil (Juniperus virginiana) is warm, soft, grounding, comfortable. And although it's still good for repelling moths, it has many other uses and benefits for health and wellness, too.
It's most frequently used for the nervous and respiratory system, but it is supportive of the urinary system as well. The oil itself is extracted through a careful process of steam distillation of the wood, leaving the woody aroma.
Supports and maintains healthy respiratory function
Helps skin recover quickly
Promotes clear, healthy skin
Relaxing and soothing aroma is perfect for massage
Cedarwood essential oil benefits our nonphysical bodies as well. Emotionally, cedarwood is said to have a grounding, calming affect on the nervous system and is thought to have the spiritual affect of bringing people together. It may help individuals feel strong and confident in themselves, while still reaching out for connection and support from those around them, both rooting a person and opening their heart.
In this way it may support a person in overcoming tendencies to hide away, to hold their cards close to their chest, or to mistrust. It may help create a sense of community and healthy relationship boundaries, or give a person the strength to examine their struggles with others, either personally or on a whole.
