Cedarwood Essential Oil

$3.82

One of the oldest aromatics known from the famous 'Cedars of Lebanon.' The oil can be added to sachets placed in areas where clothing is stored to drive away insects that like to eat cotton and wool, or to revitalize older cedar chests that have dissipated their scent over time.

It is a spa favorite when combined with other essential oils in Swedish and deep tissue massage formulas used in exclusive anti-cellulite treatments, and can be used either topically or through diffusion to stimulate the circulatory system. Cedarwood oil is only used externally in aromatherapy.
