Essential Oil Spotlight - Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana)

 

 

Before I became an aromatherapist, I had never even heard of Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) essential oil.  It definitely was not on my “to buy” list.  If you do not already own it, you should think about adding it to yours.

 

Cedarwood is one of my favorite essential oils.  It is a great alternative to any eucalyptus recommendation for a child.  Since eucalyptus contains 1,8 cineole, it is not recommend to be used on children under 10. This is my go to oil instead of peppermint or harsh eucalyptus on children.  

 

 

Emotional and Mental Uses:

Used for protection, purification of magical spaces, aura cleansing, dispel negative energies, exorcism and banishing rites, open spiritual channels, increases endurance during difficult times, supports confidence in challenging situations, grounding, strength, and meditation.

 

Physical Uses:

Used for Respiratory system support, excretory system support, oily skin and hair, tenderness, soreness, central nervous system support, tonic, and wound support.

 

Paired Crystals:

If you wanted to pair crystals with this lovely oil, blue lace agate, citrine, green moss agate, hematite, petrified wood, onyx, agate, lepidolite and tree agate are all excellent choices.  Wear them as a necklace or bracelet, carry in a pouch, or just have in your pocket.

Cypress, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Rosemary

Diffuse, bath, massage, topical
