1. Eczema is a common skin disorder that causes dry, red, itchy skin that can blister or crack. Cedar wood essential oil can cure the inflammation that leads to this irritating skin issue — it reduces skin pealing and treats the infection with its anti-fungal properties. There are a few ways to add cedar wood essential oil to your daily routine. Add the oil to your skin lotion or soap, rub it on the infected or itchy area directly, or make yourself a bath with five drops of cedar wood oil added to it.

2. Hair loss— Cedar wood essential oil can stimulate the hair follicles and increase circulation to the scalp. This contributes to hair growth and slows hair loss. Herbalists and aromatherapists have recommended essential oils for years to treat hair loss, thinning hair and various types of alopecia.

There’s evidence that applying cedar wood oil, in combination with the essential oils from thyme, rosemary and lavender, to the scalp improves hair growth in up to 44 percent for people with hair loss after seven months of treatment. To do this, add cedar wood oil to your shampoo or conditioner, or just massage the oil into your scalp and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.

3. Dry scalp— Cedar wood essential oil helps reduce dry or flaky scalp. It stimulates the scalp and increases circulation. To take advantage of this essential oil benefit, mix two drops of cedar wood essential oil with coconut oil to create a mixture with anti-fungal and moisturizing properties. Add the mixture to your scalp, and rub it in for five minutes. For the best results, let it sit on your scalp for 30 minutes or so — then wash it out.

4. Antiseptic properties— Cedar wood essential oil can safely be applied topically on wounds as an antiseptic. It defends the body against toxins and relieves your white blood cells and immune system of stress or malfunction — this protects your internal functions and fights off bacteria in the body. Create an oil rub by mixing cedar wood essential oil with coconut oil, and then rub the mixture on your body to help with wounds, scars or infections.

5. Reduces arthritis— Inflammation of the joints and tissues, which are common symptoms of arthritis, can lead to debilitating pain or discomfort; this can be lessened with the use of cedar wood essential oil. By inhaling the oil, or using it externally on the skin, you reduce inflammation — which minimizes joint stiffness. Try making yourself a bath with five to 10 drops of cedar wood essential oil.

6. Relieves spasmodic conditions— If you struggle with restless leg syndrome, respiratory seizures, asthma and other spasmodic conditions, you can find relief by taking advantage of the calming and soothing properties of cedar wood essential oil. These spasms may affect the respiratory system, muscles, intestines, heart and nerves.

7. Natural deodorizer— Cedar wood essential oil is comforting, reassuring and also possesses a wood-like pleasant scent. It adds a warm tone to any blend of perfumes or oil mixtures. It’s also known to bring people together and improve personal outlook and self-esteem. This may seem strange, but the soothing power of cedar wood oil has the ability to change a person’s perspective. Inhaling cedar wood oil, vaporizing it or adding it to a body spray can have long-lasting therapeutic effects.

8. Tightens muscles Because cedar wood essential oil is an astringent, it tightens loose muscles and creates a feeling of firmness and youth. It also hardens the muscles of the digestive system, which helps with stomach issues like diarrhea.  Rub three to five drops of cedar wood essential oil into your hands, and then massage any sore or tight muscles. Massage your abs, arms, chest and legs. You feel a soothing and fresh sensation.

9. Serves as a diuretic— Cedar wood essential oil increases the frequency of urination and therefore removes harmful toxins, excess water and fat from the body. Rub two drops of cedar wood essential oil into your hands and massage your bladder and kidneys. This helps with urinary tract infections, water retention and kidney issues.

10. May help with Improvement of Focus and ADHD A study performed by Dr. Terry Friedmann M.D. and Dennis Eggett from Brigham Young University found that using cedar wood oil on children could greatly improve their focus and learning capacity. 34 children with ADHD were given different single oils including vetiver, cedar wood, lavender and an oil blend.

Children held up a bottle of essential oils and took three deep inhalations 3x a day for thirty days. At the end of the study subjects retook an EEG and T.O.V.A. test and with both vetiver and cedar wood oil there were significant changes. The results showed cedar wood oil inhalation improved focus in children with ADHD by 65%!

11. Cough relief— Cedar wood essential oil has the power to remove phlegm from the respiratory tract and lungs, which reduces congestion from a cough or cold. Try using a cedar wood essential oil before you go to sleep — it loosens bothersome phlegm and relieves headaches as well. Rub two drops of oil onto your chest and throat and rub it in for a minute; you can also add the oil to your nose and upper lip to help with breathing.

12. Bug repellent— Cedar wood essential oil drives away mosquitoes, flies and other insects. You can put a few drops of oil on your skin to keep them away outdoors, or use a vaporizer to keep them out of the house or apartment. You can also spray diluted cedar wood essential oil on your bed and coaches to keep the pests away.

One study measured the effectiveness of cedar wood oil against the pulse beetle and the housefly, and the results showed insecticidal activity against both test species. The study suggests that cedar wood oil can be an active natural product that, when added to commercial insecticides, is beneficial.

Do you have a problem with moths eating your clothes? Use cedar wood essential oil to keep them away (without the smell of mothballs). Add cedar wood essential oil to cotton balls and place them in your closet, on your hangers and inside of storage boxes.

13. Relieves tension— Because cedar wood essential oil is a sedative, it has the power to relieve tension and stress that affects your health. It has a soothing and calming effect on the mind, reduces  inflammation and muscle pain, and minimizes skin irritation or itchiness. The scent of cedar wood essential oil encourages the release of serotonin, which is converted into melatonin in the brain. Melatonin induces restorative sleep and leaves you feeling calm.

These aromatherapy properties of cedar wood essential oil help people with chronic stress and depression. All you have to do is inhale cedar wood essential oil directly from the bottle; you can also diffuse a few drops of oil or rub a drop of oil right above your eyebrows to relieve tension.

15. Acne— Cedar wood essential oil protects skin pores from letting in dust or any harmful microbes into the body, which lead to acne and skin infections. Cedar wood oil is also effective for tightening the facial skin and giving it a youthful appearance. To cure your acne naturally, add one drop of cedar wood essential oil to your lotion or face soap, or massage the oil into your skin all by itself. This exercise can be added to your daily routine in order to eliminate acne.

You can also make your own face scrub by combining cedar wood essential oil with Epsom salt and coconut oil. Mix these ingredients together until you get a rough and slightly oily texture — then use the mixture to exfoliate your face and help eliminate acne for good.
