Cedarwood essential oil has an earthy, woodsy and slightly sweet scent.
Cedarwood essential oil is believed to calm and sooth nerves as well as be an astringent for acne prone skin. We love it when blended with Orange and Patchouli essential oil, but Bergamot, Clary Sage, and Ylang Ylang are also good choices. Use Cedarwood essential oil as an alternative to the more expensive and endangered Sandalwood essential oil. Cedarwood is a tree native to North America and has a rich history of traditional uses by Native Americans.
Cedarwood may irritate the skin, especially in high concentrations. It should be avoided during pregnancy.
