Benefits of Cedarwood and Sage Essential Oils

Let's talk about cedarwood and sage, two of my favorite essential oils!


Cedarwood essential oil is extracted from the wood of the cedar tree. You're probably familiar with its sweet fragrance, but you might not know about many of the health benefits associated with it. Cedarwood essential oil is good for inflammation and irritated skin, and is used in natural treatments of eczema, arthritis, acne, dermatitis, and overly-oily skin. It can be used as an antiseptic, as it is good at preventing both bacterial and fungal infections. Cedarwood is good for relieving a variety of spasm-related ailments, from restless leg syndrome to intestinal, muscle, heart, and lung-related spasmodic conditions. It is a diuretic, it stimulates and regularizes menstruation, and relieves congestion and other cold symptoms such as headache and watery eyes. Cedarwood essential oil is an astringent, an agent which causes the tightening of body tissues. As such, it is good for teeth and gums, digestive spasms, and giving skin and muscles the feeling of firmness and youth. As a general health tonic, cedarwood stimulates the metabolism and boosts the kidney and liver. Cedarwood is also an excellent sedative that calms the mind and relieves tension, stress, anxiety, and depression. It promotes the release of serotonin and is often used in natural treatments of insomnia.

Sage essential oil is extracted from sage leaves. Often used in both food and beauty products, it also has many medicinal properties. Sage has anti-fungal , anti-microbial, anti-septic, and anti-bacterial qualities. It also has antioxidant characteristics, which give skin a youthful look. It is good for inflammation and spasmodic pains, including cramps. Sage essential oil is a choleretic, which means it promotes the discharge of bile, and it provides relief from too much acid in the body. It aids in swift removal of toxins from the blood, and helps get rid of skin blemishes such as scars. Sage regularizes the menstrual cycle by activating hormones including estrogen, which gives relief from symptoms associated with periods. It relieves cough and cold symptoms, stimulates many parts of the body including the nervous, digestive, and circulatory systems, and promotes mental stability.

At Nordic House Spa, we use cedarwood and sage essential oils topically as a rub, or during aromatherapy breathing exercises.


Note: Cedarwood essential oil should never be ingested, and it may irritate the skin if used in high concentration. Sage essential oil stimulates the nervous system and should not be used by people with a history of epilepsy. Neither should be used by pregnant women.
