Known for its rich hue and warm, woody scent, Cedarwood essential oil provides a myriad of health benefits that date back to biblical times. Cedarwood is native to cold climates, thriving in high altitudes and growing up to 100 feet tall. Reminiscent of its size and strength, Cedarwood has a grounding aroma that evokes feelings of wellness and vitality.

Cedarwood ✧ The Oil of Community
Cedarwood brings people together to experience the strength and value of community. Those in need of Cedarwood struggle to form bonds within social groups. This can often be due to an over-developed sense of individuality. Rather than allowing oneself to be supported by family, friends, or a community, they live by excessive self-reliance.

On the other hand, the individual’s difficulty forming social roots may also stem from feeling disconnected and separate from the human family. Cedarwood inspires the feeling of belonging and assists the heart in opening up to receive the love and support of other people. It invites the strong-willed individual to couple the strength of individuality with the supportive power of community.

Cedarwood supports individuals in seeing that they are not alone; life is a shared experience. Cedarwood also assists in opening the awareness of individuals to the support system that is already available to them, such as friends or family that have been overlooked. It invites individuals to both give and receive, so they may experience the strength of groups and the joy of relationships.

Negative Emotions: Inability to form bonds or social roots, loneliness, feeling disconnected or separate from the human family, antisocial

Positive Properties: Connected, belonging, supported, social bonds, neighborly, joy in relationships
