Cedarwood oil contains the highest amount of sesquiterpenes.

What are Sesquiterpenes? They are a hydrocarbon group that is found in essential oils. They affect the limbic system of the brain which may elevate  mood and help us relax (overcome stress). This explains why Cedarwood is relaxing and may help with focus.

I have used Cedarwood essential oil for relaxing before bed time and soothing buggy summer days. But it is really the spiritual feelings that I get when I use it that makes me reach for the bottle time and time again. For me, the words are connected, comforted yet grounded.

There are three great professionally made blends that I use that contain Cedarwood. They are Australian Blue, Sacred Mountain and Highest Potential. contains Gathering and Australian Blue Blends!

This section is a fun and easy reference guide for Cedarwood Essential Oil. It will tell you how to use it and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun suggestions, safety precautions for you and your pet!

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?

Cedarwood oil helps you embrace the feeling of being totally safe and secure with yourself as well as in your environment. As fears are released, the heart is open to spiritual love and protection which also brings self acceptance and love.

This energetic feeling of a safe warm blanket translates well to animals. Use this oil to foster these emotions in your animals environment. This will be particular helpful when you have adopted an animal that has come from negative circumstances or poor homes.

NEAT – straight, undiluted, then

  • Apply several drops (2-4) on location
  • Apply to chakras
  • Directly inhale, or
  • Diffuse.

Can this Oil be Used for Animals? Yes, have your animals smell it directly from the bottle or place a drop or two in your palm, then smell. Or place a drop in your palm and pet head to toe on your dog and cat. I make up a spray with Cedarwood that works great!

Note About Animal Use: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Pine and citrus products and oils in particular. Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils for best results! Safe for children over 2 years of age. Pregnant women should use caution. Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin.

If pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use.
