Weekly Essential Oil~ Cedarwood

Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) essential oil is steam distilled from the wood of the tree.  It has a warm, woody aroma and a rich, sweet base note.  Cedarwood has many uses and is gentle enough to use with children.  It is an emotionally calming and grounding oil.  It can help to reduce stress as well as offer respiratory support for sinus congestion due to allergies, colds and flu.  Cedarwood is also useful in body care blends for the skin.  Due to its cedrol content, it can help protect minor skin irritations and scrapes from infection.

Diffuser Blend
3 drops Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana)
2 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
3 drops Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies?  Aromatherapy inhalers are excellent for reducing an itchy nose and sneezing.  This inhaler is available in my shop. {here}
