It seems that everyone is looking for ways to heal themselves naturally. With the threat of forced vaccinations, superbugs, and influx of information that mainstream medicine is more interested in making money than in making you well, it only makes sense to get all the facts about allowing your body to heal itself with the gifts from Mother Nature.

Cedarwood essential oil is one of those gifts. This oil comes from the bark of several species of cedar trees including Red, Eastern Red, Southern Red, and Virginian cedar trees. These wonderfully fragrant trees are native to the colder regions of North America and can grow more than 100 feet tall!

Cedar has been highly valued and used for centuries all over the world. Solomon used cedar tree to build the Temple of Jerusalem. Native American tribes thought cedar was sacred and often used it as a smudge for purification. The Egyptians used cedar for both cosmetic and medicinal purposes.

If you loved opening your grandmother’s cedar chest so that you could smell that beautifully scented wood, then you will understand the appeal of cedarwood oil.

The oil from the bark of cedar trees has many powerful healing components, including alpha and beta cedrene, cedrol, and several types of sesquiterpenes, which can be used to treat various health problems that plague both the mind and body.

Cedarwood oil is well known for being naturally:

  • Astringent
  • Antifungal
  • Anti-infectious
  • Diuretic
  • Sedative
  • Antiseptic
  • Insect repellant

Please note that pregnant women should avoid using this oil, and that it is not safe to consume cedarwood oil internally.
