Cedarwood Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil

young-living-cedarwood-essential-oil1In our family we have found this oil useful in promoting restful sleep and calming the mind.  A few of my sons have found help with mental focus while studying for school.  I love the woodsy smell and the males in my family prefer to wear this oil over more floral scented oils.  We’ve enjoying mixing it in a homemade aftershave for this purpose.

Cedarwood Essential Oil has been used throughout antiquity.  The Egyptians used it for embalming the dead.  It was also used as incense in Tibet.  In the Bible verses, Leviticus 14:54-56, describes a blend of the essential oils of 50% cedarwood and 50% hyssop to balance the skin.  The Biblical remedy suggest applications of the oil blend to the right ear, the right thumb, and the right big toe which are all emotional reflex points for the right brain.
