Cedarwood is a plant native to cold climates and is normally found at high altitudes. The health benefits of Cedarwood Organic Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antiseborrheic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, tonic, astringent, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, insecticidal, sedative and fungicidal substance.
Cedarwood Organic Essential Oil can relieve symptoms of Seborrhea or Seborrhoeic Eczema, a disease caused by a malfunction of the sebaceous glands. This results in increased sebum production and subsequent infection of the epidermal cells. The skin, coloured white or pale yellow, starts peeling off, particularly from the scalp, eyebrows, inner ear and anywhere else with hair follicles. Cedarwood Essential Oil can be beneficial in curing this inflammatory situation and can reduce this skin peeling, regularize sebum production and treat the infection.
Cedarwood is said to prevent wounds from becoming infected, as well as protecting them from tetanus germs.
Cedarwood Essential Oil can be used as a general health tonic, since it tones the organ systems and stimulates metabolism. It is said to tighten and tone muscles in the skin, stomach, digestive system and regulates brain functions, and to boost the functionality of the kidney and liver, which further improves overall health and wellness.
