Today we will be spotlighting Cedarwood essential oil. This oil has a warm, woodsy scent that promotes a relaxing environment when used topically or aromatically. I like to use a few drops of Cedarwood on a felt pad in my closet to ward off bugs or to freshen up my Cedarwood hangers and shoe trees. Cedarwood is especially effective to keep moths at bay. If you haven’t had a chance to use this oil, dōTERRA has provided many different ways to use this oil on their Uses and Benefits page or in this image below!
