Cedarwood essential oil comes from the wood of the Cedar tree, as the name implies. There are many varieties of cedar tree depending on the region grown. It’s native to cold climates and high altitudes. We have selected it as it adds a fresh and woodsy manliness aspect to our scent profiles, as well as many other therapeutic benefits.
Cedarwood essential oil is derived from the process of steam distillation of the wood pieces of the cedar wood tree, ours in particular, is Virginian Cedarwood. Cedarwood oil is excellent for the skin by helping to balance naturally occurring oils on the skin. This woodsy scent is easily connected with peace and tranquillity of a calming forest. Many people are always asking for this scent as it contributes to a sense of well being, self-care and relaxation.
Ironic enough, coming from insect riddled forests - Cedarwood oil is commonly used as an insect repellant – and the scientific evidence to support this is sound. There are numerous studies using cedarwood oil against various insect species.
Other benefits include concentration improvement, anxiety and tension relief, antibacterial properties, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Never consume cedarwood oil internally as it can cause vomiting, nausea and damage to the digestive system. Always dilute cedarwood oil with carrier oils before applying it to the skin. It can cause skin irritation if used undiluted.
Our chemists have found the perfect ratio to dilute our Cedarwood oil alongside our house blend of high-end natural ingredients, keeping the scent mild enough to smell for a few hours but not overwhelming. Chances are if you have bought other products with overpowering scent profiles made from essential oils, they have not been adequately diluted and may cause skin irritation.
