Cedarwood-  AroMeds Juniperus virginiana is ethically wild-harvested and the wood branches are steam distilled in Canada. The tree is in the cupressaceae plant family, and is a base note with a woody, sweet, balsamic aroma.


  • Cedarwood's mildly sedating effects can be very effective when addressing chronic anxiety, tension and stress. Great diffused or in a nasal inhaler.
  • Its antiseptic and astingent qualities make this an effective oil to use when addressing coughs and bronchitis. Also, great when treating acne flair ups...just a drop on a blemish can resolve the issue.
  • Recommended for inclusion in insect repellant sprays. Most people enjoy cedarwood, but insects don't!
