Uses and Benefits of Cedarwood Oil


Cedarwood oil is probably one of my favorite ‘weapons’  in my little essential oils arsenal. I bought it after finding it through my autism research and Dr. Terry Friedman’s ADHD study on Vetiver, Lavender, and Cedarwood oils. In the study, each oil had pretty impressive results and they all pair well together so they can all be used simultaneously for possibly even better results. It helps to calm my son and even his mood out.

Cedarwood oil benefits nearly every system in the body so it has made it’s way into my essential oil routine as well. Cedarwood is absolutely amazing for respiratory issues and I speak from experience! I have a lung that has collapsed in the past and I still have issues with it still from time to time. I have really noticed a difference since using the oil. I think it’s partly because it’s an expectorant so it helps to remove all that nasty crap that can build up in your respiratory system.

Cedarwood oil is great for skin conditions and disorders because it has astringent and antiseptic properties. It relaxes the skin as well as toning and cleansing it of impurities. It’s great for eczema, psoriasis, cellulite, acne, colds, coughs, and practically every other skin issue you can think of. It’s also antisborrhoeic which means it can normalize sweat gland secretion.

This oil is a well known nervine tonic that has the ability to relax the nervous system and offers sedative qualities from being inhaled.  Cedarwood clinical trial in Japan
