What is Cedarwood Essential Oil used for?
Cedarwood comes from the Cedar tree which has many different species. Popular in cultures like the Native American, Tibetan, and the Ancient Egyptians, it has potent properties that make it useful for many different purposes. It is commonly used in the form of oil that is distilled from the wood of the Cedar tree.
Cedarwood oil has particularly strong benefits for scalp and hair care. It is known to help with hair loss, thinning hair, and even various types of alopecia. It stimulates hair follicles and increases blood circulation to the scalp contributing to hair growth and slowing hair loss. It also tightens hair follicles leading to stronger and more resilient hair growth. It is also useful for dry and flaky scalps due to its ability to moisturize the scalp and its antifungal properties which are useful for combating dandruff.
High on anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties also make Cedarwood a potent ingredient to combat acne, breakouts, and other skin inflammations and irritations. It also regulates sebum production reducing the oiliness of the skin and reducing chances of acne and breakouts. A natural antiseptic, it also guards against the growth of harmful microorganisms that can impact the health of your skin.
Cedarwood is also known for its pleasant wood-like scent. Combined with its antibacterial properties, it makes for a great deodorizer. It neutralizes odor causing bacteria and also provides a long lasting pleasant fragrance. It has natural astringent properties that help tighten muscles and skin to reduce sagging, loose and wrinkly skin, uneven skin tone, and enlarged pores. It forms a protective layer of proteins on the skin which leaves little to no space for dirt and bacteria to lodge and fester resulting in cleaner and brighter skin.
