Cedarwood is a warming, comforting oil that soothes mind and body. It is a lovely oil to combine with citrus oils to create a focused, uplifting blend, or combine with florals to create soothing sleepy time blend.

Additionally, Cedarwood is frequently used in massage therapy to relax and soothe the mind and body.
