1.  Stops Acne

A natural astringent, cedarwood oil is powerful anti-acne medicine. Add one drop of cedarwood essential oil to your daily routine. You can dab it directly on zits, or add it to your moisturizer or cleanser.

 

2. Great for Hair

If you have a problem with dandruff, or if you feel that you have an excessively oily scalp, simply add 10 drops of cedarwood oil to eight ounces of your normal shampoo and shake well to distribute. When you shampoo, allow it to sit on your scalp for three to five minutes while it works. This oil will also increase the circulation to the scalp which might help stimulate hair growth.

 

3. Super Moth Repellant

This is why so many clothing storage chests are made of cedar. Moths hate the smell and won’t go near it! You can keep moths and other insects away from your clothing by placing one or two drops of cedarwood oil on a cotton ball or on a strip of fabric and hang it in your closet, drop it in your dresser drawers or put it in storage boxes. Replace as needed. Avoid letting the oil touch the clothes directly.

 

4.  Stress Relief

This oil has a super calming and soothing effect on both mind and body. This is a great choice for relieving the stress that is caused by anxiety. You can use this in aromatherapy to relax and unwind. Put a few drops of cedarwood oil on a piece of cloth, cotton ball, or even directly on your hands, then place them around your nose and breathe in deeply for 30 seconds to a minute. This super aromatic scent will trigger endorphins in your brain, relaxing you and calming the nerves.
