I love the smell of Cedarwood. It is a ‘blokey’ kind of smell so the guys who don’t want to smell like a flower or a fruit can still use it.

The smell of Cedarwood reminds me of the smell of Christmas as a child in England. Cedarwood and Orange Oils in an oil burner on your Christmas table creates a beautiful atmosphere

Be careful:

This is an Essential Oils to avoid during pregnancy.


Chest Decongestion

It is great for chest rubs as it is a decongestant. Be prepared to cough up some pretty gross bits from your cold infected lungs because this oil helps to break up phlegm.  This is better out than in! Just add 5 drops to a carrier oil and massage the chest or feet. If you add the same amount of Lavender and Rosemary it also helps to soothe other cold and flu symptoms such as headaches and achy bones.

Skin problems

Cedarwood helps with acne and oily skin problems. You can make your own blend with a scent free face cream by just adding 5 drops. As I said before it has a lovely woody smell so it isn’t offensive.

Anti- fungal

Cedarwood Oil is also anti-fungal. Add 10 drops along with 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil to a foot bath to help with Athlete’s foot. Soak for 15 minutes 3 times per day.

Any fungal infection will be benefited by soaking or dabbing with Cedarwood oil. If you cannot physically soak the area infected then applying a few drops in a carrier oil to the area will help.

Insect repellent.

Mossies do not like the smell of Cedarwood. Get a spray bottle and add 10 drops of Cedarwood and 10 drops of Lavender. Then fill with water and use as a spray on your skin. It is a much nicer way of repelling bugs than spraying chemicals on you.

Caution: Non-toxic, non-irritant. Avoid during pregnancy.
