CHEMISTRY & SAFETY
CHEMISTRY: Unique to Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) is a high a-cedrene content(32%+/-). a-cedrene is a Sesquiterpene which is a larger molecule. When using topically in a cream or oil, it is best to combine it with a monoterpene (smaller molecule) to increase the absorption rate. Essential oils with d-limonene (citruses) will help Cedarwood absorb into the skin more effectively.
SAFETY: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Always dilute essential oils before applying to the skin and keep away from mucous membranes. If the oil is past it’s “use by” date or stored improperly, it may cause irritation and lose therapeutic value.
