ROOM FRAGRANCE: An excellent long lasting, relaxing fragrance, ideal to create a tranquil atmosphere and help relax the mind after a traumatic day.
INHALATION: Particularly useful as part of mixtures for inhalation of the vapors from hot water. The oil is very soothing for bronchial complaints as well as having an expectorant action.
BATHS: This oil is quite thick and so is ideally dispersed before use. To help prevent a sticky line around the bath following the use of neat(undiluted) Cedarwood oil, it is advisable to first disperse the oil in a solvent such as bubble bath, washing up liquid, or a vegetable oil and then add this mixture to the bath water. To a teaspoon of bubble bath or washing up liquid, add about 6 drops of cedarwood oil, mix well, then add a teaspoon of warm water and mix again until the oil is fully dispersed: finally add this mixture to a well-filled bath. It may be used for any of the conditions mentioned under the other headings.
MASSAGE: As many men seem to like this fragrance and it has a reputation as a male stimulant, then this can be put to good use for the problem of stress related impotence. A massage, or bath may help de-stress the mind and break through its ability to suppress normal bodily functions. This oil is ideal for relieving anxiety and also calming down people with a volatile temperament. This oil seems to be very beneficial for sore irritating skin problems such as eczema, dermatitis and acne, but care must be exercised in case the individual has a cosmetics allergy.
Caution: Not advisable neat on the skin, or for long term use for conditions such as eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis. May be wiser to avoid its use in early pregnancy. Do not confuse with Cedar LEAF oil which is entirely different and much more dangerous. Keep all essential oils well away from children and especially away from the eyes.
This is my preferred cedarwood compared to other wood oils in the same family.
This is my favorite cederwood oil. Wonderful for masculint blends. It pairs perfectly with lemon. The two go hand in hand and create an unexpected scent. One of my top 10 diffuser blends is Texas, Lemon, Clove, Vetiver, Grapefruit & Spearmint.... sub clove for allspice or Vetiver for buddah wood
Out of the Sample bottle, I didn't like this oil because it was sooo strong, But after letting it air out on a q-tip, It has a great smoky-woody aroma that I really like! I just ordered a bigger bottle! Can't wait to make some colognes and deodorants!
Perfect Cedar scent and the best I have found in 20 years! Makes me feel like I'm in the forest, and I can't get enough of its perfect natural fragrance. I diffuse it weekly. I use it in nearly every blend because it is so beautiful. THIS is the cedar in my closet. The fragrance isn't just for men, I'm a woman and I am deeply drawn to it. Ordering large size this time!
IMPRESSED!! I bought an 8oz bottle for HP and CP soapmaking. This is the 4th brand of rosemary I have purchased and the only one that actually smells like rosemary! Love it, good strong aroma!! Thank you AV!!
