Cedrus deodara, also known as Himalayan Cedarwood, is known to be especially effective for reducing the chronic inflammation and pain from rheumatoid arthritis. Cedarwood is great to blend into a cream for the chest to relieve congestion and suppress coughing. It has a stimulating effect on the respiratory system and is especially useful when an infection is present. It has a sweet, woody aroma.
Cedarwood-deodara is from the Pine family growing at high altitudes and is closely related to Cedarwood Atlas (Cedrus atlantica). Cedarwood is traditionally considered a male fragrance and is often used in men's cosmetic products. Its sweet, woody aroma is often incorporated into blends as a base note, giving strength and stability to the aroma. It appears to offer these same properties on a mental/emotional level as well.
Its astringent and antiseptic qualities make it useful in skin care, especially for acne. It can also be used for itchy skin and for nourishing the hair.
