Cedarwood

Overview

Three types of cedar trees produce essential oils for aromatherapy. The most common is red cedar (Juniperus virginiana), native to North America and reaching up to 100 feet. Its reddish heartwood and cones yield a yellow to orange oil with a sweet, balsamic scent. Texas cedarwood (Juniperus mexicana), growing up to 21 feet in the southwestern U.S., Mexico, and Central America, produces a dark-orange oil with a sweet, smoky, and woody aroma. Atlas cedar (Cedrus atlantica) from North Africa’s Atlas Mountains yields a thick, honey-colored oil with a warm, woody scent.

Emotional Effects

Cedarwood is calming, easing anxiety, nervous tension, and stress. It helps diffuse aggression, anger, and fear, stabilises energy imbalances, and reinforces resolve and independence. It also helps with emotional composure and objectivity, with many considering it an aphrodisiac.
