History: One of the essential oils used since ancient times, Cedarwood was used by the Ancient Egyptians for the mummification process and in Ancient Israel for building the temple of Solomon. Hailing from Lebanon, it is thought to be one of the first oils to be distilled in human history. Also used by Tibetan and Native American communities to address ailments and for ceremonial use, Cedarwood was also known to relax the body and mind, being used for prayer and meditation. It continues to be used for this today as well as for cosmetic and perfumery purposes.

Can Cedarwood Aid Respiratory Health?
Cedarwood contains bioactive compounds that make it antimicrobial, soothe inflammation and have expectorant qualities, easing congestion. As a result, it plays a beneficial role in treating cold and flu symptoms, as well as helping to treat bronchitis and asthma. It helps relieve irritation caused by coughing.

How can Cedarwood Reduce Tension?
It contains a compound called cedrol that is a natural sedative, great for helping reduce anxiety and stress. The calming and grounding properties actively uplift the mood and promotes feelings of hope and joy. The fragrance can induce the release of serotonin (the feel-good hormone) that is converted into melatonin in the brain – this kick starts the wind-down for a restorative night’s sleep.
