Cedarwood Essential Oil 101
Cedarwood belongs to the woodsy scent family (surprise, surprise!) and is known for its warm, comforting properties. You probably know it best as the scent in wood-burning saunas, but we also love using it as part of our skincare routine.
Diffusing Cedarwood on its own is very grounding. To brighten it up, all you need is a citrus oil like Bergamot. We love the simplicity of a DIY Cedarwood perfume, too—dab 1 drop on your wrists and you’re good to go.
How we use it
- Cedar shower: add 3 drops to your palms in the shower. Rub them together briskly and turn your morning wash into a special ritual.
- Scalp treatment: mix 2 drops of Cedarwood with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to create a moisturizing, anti-fungal scalp treatment. Flaky, itchy skin be gone.
- Natural deodorizer: add 5 to 10 drops of Cedarwood to a jar with baking soda and place in your fridge to keep things smelling crisp.
Blends well with
