Cedarwood Essential Oil - Benefits & Uses




It's that time of year! Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the holidays than incorporating a seasonal oil in your routine! Pine trees and earthy smells are popular and festive during the holiday season. One of the most used essential oils during this time is Cedarwood Essential Oil.


What is Cedarwood Oil?


Cedarwood essential oil is a substance derived from the needles, leaves, bark, and berries of cedar trees. This essential oil can be extracted using steam, cold pressing, and carbon dioxide distillation.


Beneficial to Hair


The most prominent trait of Cedarwood Essential Oil is the use of it on the scalp and hair. The oil, when mixed with a few others, is great for hair regrowth. The ingredients in the essential oils helps to stimulate your scalp to promote hair growth.


Additionally, this oil can help with dandruff. If you experience a dry, itchy scalp, this can help to relieve that and reduce the appearance of flakes.


Grounding for Relaxation


This grounding oil helps to aid in relaxation at the end of the day. The earthy aroma and properties inspire a more calm environment when used in diffusers. This oil also promotes calming if you are anxious or stressed to help you relax.


Clearer Skin


Another great benefit of Cedarwood Oil is to promote clearer skin. Studies have shown that it helps to reduce acne breakouts when you use it with a facial scrub or with a carrier oil. It can also help to reduce the appearance of scars, soothe eczema symptoms, and relieve arthritis pain.
