Washington State. Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) Essential Oil, Wildcrafted, Steam Distilled
Our Western Red Cedar essential oil comes from the Pacific Northwest forests, right here in Bellingham, Washington! We are pleased and excited to offer a locally harvested and distilled Red Cedar oil.
Western Red Cedar essential oil has a deep, earthy scent, and is said to have calming, grounding effects. It is considered a base note for blending purposes.
This essential oil has strong anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and is also known as a potent insect repellent. It can be used in diffusers to cleanse the atmosphere.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults: 5% (five drops per teaspoon of carrier oil). Western Red Cedar essential oil is best avoided during pregnancy and lactation.
