Cedar Leaf Essential Oil

Cedar Leaf Essential Oil is an extremely versatile aromatherapy oil, possessing many beneficial properties, which support the healthy systemic functions of our body. It is soothing, protective and restorative on every level.

Cedar Leaf Essential Oil is potently antibacterial with astringent properties, making it excellent for many chronic skin conditions, like acne. And, due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, it is also beneficial for autoimmune skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis etc.

It can revitalise and decongest dull and clogged skin by encouraging a healthy microbial balance.

Cedar Leaf Essential Oil is one of the many aromatherapy oils, made from plant materials obtained from trees, which emit phytoncides. It is these phytoncides which make forest bathing so beneficial.

Thus, diffusing Cedar Leaf Essential Oil is a great way to obtain the restorative effects of forest bathing whilst at home.

Cedar Leaf Essential Oil Energetic Properties

Cedar Leaf Essential Oil enhances conscious thought, through a process of synthesis. It calms, soothes, and supports homeostasis, thereby providing us with the means of inhabiting our bodies fully. It removes the roadblocks to accessing our higher selves.

Thuja is derived from the Greek word thuo, which means to sacrifice or fumigate. From a metaphysical standpoint, this means it facilitates the letting go of all that does not serve us. This includes; physical infirmities, societal and personal conditioning, and detrimental behavioural patterns.

Cedar Leaf Essential Oil helps to cleanse and release all elements which create deviations on our path, gently reminding us that the middle road is the path to health.

Energetically, it is grounding, centring, and stimulating, facilitating spiritual growth and greater levels of awareness.

Put simply, Cedar Leaf Essential Oil helps our energy body to flow freely, allowing for the potential of unrestricted growth.
