This sweet, woody oil is made from wildcrafted cedar trees in the USA. It is a great oil to use during meditation as it is known for providing emotional strength and is very grounding and centring. Emotionally, cedarwood has been known to relieve mental strain, help with symptoms of depression and bring relief for insomnia when stress-related.
It acts as a deterrent to moths and insects which is why our ancestors used cedar chests to store clothing. It is also antibacterial, antifungal, insecticidal and mildly astringent. These properties make it great for oil blends, steams and masks to support your skin.
This team of farmers own 70 hectares of land which are all farmed using organic growing methods and are never treated with any sort of pesticides or herbicides. This means that they have to roll up their sleeves and use a lot of manual labour to ensure that their plants thrive. Each season from March until November they employ at least 30 people, all local, for their field operations. They have their own small distillery which is very close to their fields to ensure immediate processing of the freshly harvested herbs.
In 2010 they invested in a complete pellet production line. This helps to keep their field employees busy during winters, utilising the agricultural and distilling residues (left over from the essential oil production) while at the same time doing their part to contribute to CO2 emission savings.
Cedarwood Essential Oil blends well with: Bergamot, buddha wood, clary sage, frankincense, jasmine, lavender, patchouli, rosemary and vetiver.
