Cedarwood Oil

Cedarwood Essential Oil is steam distilled from the wood of various conifers of the juniper and cedrus families, most of which grow naturally at higher altitudes in colder climates. The oil has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal properties, and is considered to be an effective insect repellent.
