If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Cedar Leaf essential oil and its many wonders.
Found in Canada, Thuja occidentalis is steam distilled to produce an intensely sharp and fresh oil, with a woody camphoraceous aroma. Cedar Leaf is a top note oil that blends well with Cedarwood, Lavender, Lemon and Pine.
Cedar Leaf can be used to help relieve mild muscle and joint pain associated with arthritis. Its antidiuretic and stimulating properties promote toxin removal and blood flow. Beneficial for women, this oil can help promote a more regular menstrual cycle, as well as alleviate cramping and nausea. Cedar Leaf can be combined with a carrier oil and other soothing oils, like Lavender, and gently massaged into the abdomen for relief. You can also try making your own soothing bath bomb for an added sense of pampering. Cedar Leaf can also be used for insects like mosquitos, fleas, and bed bugs.
This oil is on the strong side, so it is best used in smaller doses for aromatic purposes.
