Cedarwood Essential Oil

Insomnia is the companion that won’t quit. In the hours of darkness huddled beneath the comfort of your own bed, your mind is blank, painfully aware of the time that slowly ticks by. Where there should be dreams is a heavy blackness only perturbed by the dawn light that seeps through your blinds. Sleep comes in bouts of fitful hours. You can score three on a good day, two on a bad. In those moments, your eyes flicker to the bottle of sleeping pills. They don’t work, you realize; you don’t want them, you don’t want chemicals. You want sleep.

Luckily, DoTERRA has got a solution for your sleeplessness! Cedarwood is the perfect essential oil to help you unwind at the end of the day! With its distinct woodsy aroma, Cedarwood promotes a release of serotonin which is converted into melatonin, an important hormone secreted by the pineal gland that is intimately involved with the sleep cycle. A study conducted in 2003 in the Biological Science Laboratories in Japan analyzed the sedative properties of Cedarwood on Wistar rats. They found that Cedarwood inhalation had remarkable sedative effects regardless of the animal species or the functional state of autonomic nerves.

If you are feeling tense, stressed, or experience sleep troubles, try inhaling Cedarwood from the bottle or add two-to-three drops in a diffuser. Furthermore, rub several drops behind your ears, on the back of your neck, and at the bottoms of your feet for added effectiveness.
