5 Ways to Use Cedarwood Essential Oil

With centuries of traditional uses by Egyptian, Tibetan, and Sumerian cultures, the wood of this great tree produces the largest volume of sesquiterpenes amongst the essential oils, enabling cedarwood essential oil to enhance circulation and cellular oxygen.

Cedarwood is also a detoxifier, a property which supports optimal bodily function and especially enhances the health of your skin and hair. You can apply this oil neat, or undiluted, unless directed otherwise. Used as an antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, or astringent, this oil supports a wide range of conditions, five of which are described below.


Cedarwood properties help strengthen your skin, eliminating excess oil and supporting healthy skin cells. For acne-prone skin, apply a couple drops of the oil either neat or diluted in a 1:1 ratio with a carrier oil directly to the site of the acne spots. Recommended for use before and after bathing.


The oil helps clear airways and support the respiratory tract. To combat congestion, apply topically to the chest and massage into the soles of the feet. For nasal congestion, inhale directly from the bottle.


This antifungal oil helps promote healthy hair and scalp by balancing skin pH levels, while relieving irritation and dryness. Simply add 1-2 drops of cedarwood to your regular all-natural shampoo and wash your hair as usual to rid of dandruff.

Kidney Support

By strengthening the body’s normal kidney function and assisting with detoxification, cedarwood is a natural kidney supporter. Three times a day, simply massage topically over the kidneys.


Cedarwood essential oil helps relieve stress, tension, and anxiety. Try diffusing throughout the home, applying over the chest, head, and the feet reflex points. Or use the steam method? steam two drops of the oil in a pan of boiling water. Remove the boiling water from the stove and, after pouring into a separate bowl, put a towel over your head and the bowl. Inhale deeply.
