Description: Cedar Leaf essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the Cedar tree using steam distillation. This particular oil comes from the Cedar trees of North America. Historically, Cedar leaves were used by Native Americans (North America) to relieve headaches, fever, and coughs; they would use the leaves as a tea. It was also used to treat scurvy as recent as the 1900’s. With a pleasant scent perfect for deodorizing a house, it is recommended for steam baths to help remedy rheumatism, arthritis, swollen feet and congestion. It can also be used topically to remove warts. It is anti-rheumatic, anti-anxiety, antifungal, a diuretic, an expectorant, a stimulant to the nerves, uterus and heart muscles, a tonic and a vermifuge. The powerful therapeutic properties of Cedar Leaf essential oil cannot go unnoticed. It is popular for its high content of thujone, a compound that makes it an effective form of alternative medicine. It comes with a sharp, fresh, woodsy aroma that makes it a popular component in the perfume, toiletry, and cosmetic industries. The oil can blend well with most oils, such as Lemon, Lavender, Sage, Pine, Lavandin, Armoise, and Cedarwood. Cedar Leaf essential oil is an expectorant and a mucolytic, which means it makes mucus and sputum thinner and easier to cough up. It clears a congested respiratory system, making it easier to breathe. This can be especially helpful for people with chronic respiratory and sinus problems. This essential oil is effective in the management of health problems associated with inflammatory disorders and joint problems, such as arthritis. It also helps in relieving the pain and stiffness associated with such health issues and promotes blood flow to the affected areas.
