Our wildcrafted cedarwood essential oil is steam distilled from wood, shavings, sawdust, and other high quality lumber excess of the Juniperus virginiana tree grown in the United States, and crafted by a phenomenal distiller. This oil is a pale yellow to almost orange yellow color, with a woodsy, oily, sweet, balsamic aromatic profile.
Cedarwood is high in a-cedrene, a chemical element in the sesquiterpenes chemical family, found to be extremely useful as an antiseptic, astringent, sedative, and insecticide. It could also be helpful when formulating blends for anxiety, nervous tension, cystitis, urinary tract infections, coughs, and chronic bronchitis. Cedarwood is also sometimes beneficial for supporting skin and hair health, possibly improving conditions such as mild to moderate acne, and dandruff.
Energetically, cedarwood essential oil is extremely powerful, strengthening, and fortifying for the body and mind.
Cedarwood essential oil is non-irritant, non-sensitizing, and non-toxic. However, use during pregnancy is not advised and safety guidelines for blending in aromatherapy should be observed.

Non-toxic. Many sources tell us to avoid Cedarwood oil during pregnancy. There is no research to support this claim with Cedrus atlantica, Cedrus deodara or Juniperus virginiana. The existing uncertainty may be due in part to the many different types of cedarwood trees.
The suggested shelf life is 6-8 years.
