This month, I would like to start off with the first aromatherapy post of the year. This month's topic is cedarwood. Cedarwood essential oil is steam distilled from pieces of wood from cedarwood trees which are generally found at high altitudes in colder climates.
When using cedarwood, it is important to remember that it should never be ingested. It is generally safe to diffuse or breathe in, but should be done so cautiously during pregnancy. It is also safe to apply topically, but should be applied with more caution in pregnant women and children. When applying topically, it is recommended that you dilute it in a carrier oil or in water for a spray.

It mixes particularly well with citrus and flower essential oils such as lemon, orange, bergamot, rose, jasmine, lavender, and more.
