Cedarwood Virginia

Cedarwood Virginia has an aroma similar to Cedarwood Atlas, yet not as sharp, as they are quite different plants. Cedarwood Virginia is actually a Juniper plant species.

Cedarwood Virginia is very soothing and helps to relieve mental strain, stress, depression, and insomnia. It has properties which can help to treat a variety of skin and hair conditions –  acne, eczema, dermatitis, ulcers and psoriasis, oily skin and hair dandruff.

Its slightly masculine aroma makes it a positive addition to aftershaves and beard oil. It is also a circulatory stimulant which is great for massage oil and bath blends.

As a decongestant, it helps remove mucus from bronchitis, coughs, colds and flu.

Can also be used as an insect repellent.
