The Cedarwood I use comes from North America. The oil is steam distilled from the heartwood of the tree and is a base oil high in cedrol. Like the other base note oils Cedarwood has calming and relaxing properties. Cedrol also enhances fibroblast growth in the skin so it is very good for skin issues. This oil can be used aromatically and topically but is not recommended for internal use.
I recently had some energy work done (highly recommend) and Cedarwood was the oil I needed. What a great oil. One thing I love about sharing essential oils is that I am always learning something new everyday. Not only about essential oils, but listening to others stories, advice and opinions, and about myself. I invite you to try them and feel good and enjoy life. Learn to love yourself so you can enjoy this amazing life. This oil helps individuals in seeing that they are not alone.

Enjoy Emotions and Essential Oils. If you know someone who suffers emotionally, this is a great book and it comes with a CD that explains how to use essential oils to heal emotionally. There is a story at the beginning of the book about a little girl named Kali, this is an amazing little girl and I am so grateful her parent shared this story to give us all hope to help those we love. Enjoy.
