Cedarwood (Himalayan) from Aromatics

Cedarwood (Himalayan)

Cedrus deodara

Description

(Was referred to as Himalayan Fir) Our Himalayan Cedarwood is grown high in the Himalayan Mountains and has a sweet, woodsy aroma that is reminiscent of Cedarwood Atlas. This oil has a strong personality enhancing stability. We have 2 Cedarwoods (Cedrus deodara).  One from India and this one from Nepal, grown in the Himalayan mountains. This Cedarwood from Nepal has a gentle, sweet, woodsy aroma and is lower in the himachalol that the Indian Cedarwood has.

This essential oil is an excellent support for upper and lower respiratory health as well as for specifically assisting to ease neuralgic pain. It also encourages healthy lymphatic flow. 

Himalayan Cedarwood is a perfect ingredient in blends for easing general pain and supporting healthy tissue.

Why do we love our essential oils?

  • we personally know our producers (and love them!)
  • we provide distillation dates for each batch (to guarantee freshness)
  • we make sure each batch of oil is tested to guarantee purity and consistency
  • GC/MS reports are available on each batch of oil, so blending using chemical components is incredibly accurate (and so much fun!)

If you would like to know more about aromatherapy, we highly recommend…

  • The Aromahead Institute (their free online class is amazing!)
  • Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit, by Gabriel Mojay
  • The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy, by Salvatore Battaglia (second edition)
