Cedarwood, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.  Ok, that’s not how the poem goes-but it might have been if I was the one who wrote it.  Cedarwood essential oil is amazing!  Read on to learn a thing or two about this versatile oil.

Cedarwood essential oil is often used as a promoter of wellness and vitality.  It can help you get amazing hair, a fabulous shave, soft and even-looking skin tone, and a dreamy bedtime routine.  I also love it so many different ways in the diffuser!

Cedarwood for Hair

One of my favorite ways to use cedarwood is as a boost for my hair.  Warm a few drops of this essential oil for on your palms and fingers and gently rub it into your scalp for healthy-looking hair.

Cedarwood for Skin

Getting great skin with Cedarwood is as easy as this:  Add it to your nightly body lotion, daily face moisturizer, and weekly face mask. Cedarwood has skin-cleansing properties, helps maintain the appearance of youthful skin, and moisturizes and conditions.

Cedarwood for Sleep

This is hands down my favorite use for this oil.  The scent is so warm and calming, and it also softens and warms any oil it is paired with.  I personally am not a huge fan of floral scents, but lavender is AMAZING for sleep.  Adding cedarwood to it in the diffuser is the perfect way to soften the scent and gets me ready to drift off to dreamland.  I also put a drop on my big toe for added benefits-the large pores on our feet allow oils to enter our bloodstream more quickly and get the benefits right where they need to go.
