Cedar wood essential oil is woodsy, spicy and warm. Cedar trees in the US are native to the south. Cedar trees have significant religious implications from Christianity to Buddhism to the mummification properties of the ancient Egyptians. The cedars of Lebanon, referenced over 70 times in the Bible are now endangered. They were used to build ships by the Phoenicians and the temple of Jerusalem. Propagation of the tree is challenging as they can only grow from females cones that can take 30 years to be produced. They can grow to 30 ft. and live for 1,000 of years. Cedar wood essential oil comes from juniper and cedar, mostly from the actual wood. Its properties include expectorant, antispasmodic, sedative, and as an astringent it is known to tighten pores. We have cedar wood essential oil in our marigold cleanser and flourish roll on perfume, it adds a lovely warm note.
