What is Cedar wood Essential Oil?

Cedar wood essential oil is extracted through the process of steam distillation from the wood pieces of the cedar wood tree, which has the scientific name Juniperus virginiana.


Health Benefits of Cedar wood Essential Oil

Here are the most popular and well-researched medicinal properties and benefits of cedar wood oil. Let’s take a look at them in detail.


Relieves Symptoms of Seborrhoea

Seborrhoea or Seborrhoeic Eczema is a dreadful disease caused by a malfunction of the sebaceous glands. Cedar wood oil can be beneficial in curing this inflammatory situation and can reduce this skin peeling, regularize sebum production, and treat the infection. The oil also reduces the ugly redness and obvious signs of the condition while eliminating it. 


Prevents Infections

Cedar wood oil prevents wounds from becoming septic as well as protecting them from tetanus germs. It can safely be applied externally to wounds as an antiseptic, and it is even used as an ingredient in herbal antiseptic creams. By defending the body against toxins, cedar wood essential oil relieves the white blood cells and the immune system of the extra stress, which allows them to protect the internal functions. 


Relieves Spasms

Relieving spasms is yet another important medicinal property of cedar wood oil. Nearly all types of spasms and related conditions can be relieved using this oil. This includes spasms that affect the respiratory system, intestines, muscles, heart, and nerves.


Health Tonic

Cedar wood oil can be used as a general health tonic since it tones the organ systems and stimulates metabolism. It tightens and tones muscles in the skin, stomach, digestive system, and regulates brain functions. It boosts the functionality of the kidney and liver, which further improves overall health and wellness. 


Acts as an Astringent

As an astringent, cedar wood oil helps relieve toothaches, strengthens the grip of gums on teeth and protects them from falling out. It also tightens loose muscles and gives a feeling of firmness, fitness, and youth. This property can also be used to remedy diarrhea, by tightening the muscles of the digestive system and contracting those spasm-prone muscles.


Eliminates Cough

If you are suffering from a cough, cold, and related congestion, you should try cedar wood oil to alleviate the irritation. It is an expectorant and efficiently eliminates a cough and removes phlegm from the respiratory tracts and lungs, thereby relieving congestion. By stimulating the loosening of phlegm and the coughing which will remove it, you also protect your respiratory tract and overall health from toxins and conditions that excess phlegm can cause. 


Insect Repellant

Cedar wood oil has been in use as a mosquito and insect repellant for a long time. When used in vaporizers, it drives away mosquitoes, flies, and other insects.


Sedative Effect

Its popular use as a sedative might be the most unexpected and valuable aspect. Cedar wood oil is an excellent sedative and has a great soothing and calming effect on the mind. Also helps in promoting healthy, restorative, and uninterrupted sleep, so it is often used by patients suffering from insomnia. In aromatherapy, the scent can induce the release of serotonin, which is converted into melatonin in the brain. Melatonin induces a night of calm and restorative sleep. For this reason, cedar wood aromatherapy is recommended for people with chronic anxiety, stress, and depression
