If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Cade essential oil and its many wonders.
With origins in Spain, the wood of Juniperus oxycedrus is steam distilled to produce an oil with an intense, smoky, tar-like, and phenolic aroma. This base oil blends well with Cedarwood, Clove Bud, Origanum, Rosemary, and Thyme.
Usually being called prickly is an insult, but in the case of Cade essential oil, it’s used to refer to it as Prickly Juniper. Starting in the 19th century, the French started using this oil to help relieve skin irritation. If you have minor skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, or scalp infections, you may want to add a few drops of Cade to a soothing topical blend. If you have sensitive, dry, or mature skin, you can use Apricot oil to make this blend. In the veterinary sciences, Cade has been used to help horses with such conditions as ulcers, scabies, worms and parasites.
