Please be aware when purchasing Cedarwood essential oil. We recommend Port Orford, Atlas and Himalayan Cedarwood oils, as they are the safest to use, have an appealing aroma, and are the only true Cedar oils typically available. Texas Cedarwood and Virginia Cedarwood are actually Junipers and although quite useful, are different in aroma and therapeutic value. Cedar Leaf oil is from a species of Thuja and is best used very carefully or not at all due to its neurotoxicity.
Topical dosage: dilution to 3-5% for topical use.
