Cedarwood, Himalayan (10ml)
In India Himalayan Cedarwood oil is reputed to possess insecticidal and antifungal properties and to have some potential for control of fungal deterioration of spices during storage.
Cedarwood’s anti-septic, deodorising and insect-repellent properties make it a very useful oil for burning or diffusing.
One of the more masculine of essential oils, Cedarwood is popularly used in toiletries for men. For a light, aftershave facial oil add 1 drop of Cedarwood, 2 drops of Patchouli and 2 drops of Bergamot to 15ml of Jojoba oil.
To help improve the condition of the scalp and encourage healthy hair, add 3 drops each of Cedarwood and Rosemary to 10ml of Coconut oil (or 5ml Coconut and 5ml Wheatgerm for very dry hair) and massage thoroughly into the scalp. Leave for as long as possible before shampooing out.
