Testimonial: " (Cedarwood) is a great oil and a wonderful aroma for diffusing.
(Author) David Stewart has found that Cedarwood applied to the right thumb is great for overcoming emotional blocks to learning. It helped me overcome an aversion to learning about the chemistry of the oils.
Inhaling the oil of cedarwood increases the ability to think clearly and enhances the awareness needed for effective prayer and meditation. This is because of all the essential oils of the world, Cedarwood contains the highest concentration of sesquiterpenes, which have the ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier and oxygenate the brain directly upon inhalation by way of the nasal passages and the olfactory nerves. It has been suggested that cedarwood oil might prevent senility and Alzheimer's disease.
Perhaps this is why the palaces of King David and King Solomon were built of cedar. King Solomon contracted King Hiram to supply all the materials needed (The Cedars of Lebanon) in return for wheat and fine oils for every year as long as it took to complete the temple. Unfortunately, the cedars of Lebanon were nearly forested to extinction and today only small patches exist in the far regions.
Cedrus atlantica is believed to be the closest in chemistry to the cedars of Biblical times you'll be pleasantly surprised!
Key Chemistry: Cedarwood contains 98% sesquiterpenes which delete or erase misinformation written in the DNA as a result of trauma, abuse, loss, ancestral or generational, and limiting beliefs.

It is recognized for its calming, purifying properties.

CEDARWOOD FOR COLD/SORE THROAT
....And speaking of Cedarwood. I have a nasty cold and sore throat. A couple Sundays ago I woke up with a hacking cough and Shari told me to put Cedarwood on my throat & chest. I did, and it helped immensely. I was feeling rough enough I stayed home from church and read the first few chapters of the Desk Reference. I also looked up Cedarwood and nowhere does it mention for respiratory problems. But it DOES help with this hacking cough!! I use it through the day.
CEDARWOOD FOR SLEEP
At night I place a drop or two of Cedarwood on my forehead and temples then dab the rest under my nose or perhaps on the outer rims of my ears. I fall asleep much more easily, perhaps because Cedarwood is known to stimulate melatonin,
the "sleep hormone."
* Use only the BEST therapeutic grade essential oils. EO's from bath shops and natural foods stores are often perfume grade and thus may not yield therapeutic results. Perfume grade oils have been rendered toxic by the distillation method, fillers, chemical extractants, etc. and may cause adverse reactions. "
