Cedarwood Essential Oil has a warm, very earthy scent. You recognize the wood and the scent instantly. What we like about it Cedarwood EO are all the great things it does for the skin. It has benefits as an anti-inflammatory for such skin issues as eczema and can help regulate sebum (oil) production, it’s an antiseptic, astringent, tonic and has claims of providing relief as an antispasmodic. We’ve also had hunter’s comment that although they prefer no scent when hunting, Cedarwood EO is the next best thing for blending with the environment. A great oil for soap making for the earthy person.
