Great for smoothing and nourishing all skin types, Cedarwood essential oil is a very versatile oil with a rich, woodsy aroma. Because this oil also benefits hair,
it’s a great choice for nourishing skin on the scalp.

Smooth skin on the face or body by adding
a few drops Cedarwood to your favorite lotions.

Add 3-4 drops to a bowl of hot water.
Cover your head and the bowl with a towel and breathe deeply and slowly for several minutes to open pores
and enjoy the calming aroma. Follow up with a facial massage that includes 1 drop of Cedarwood oil.

Mix 5–6 drops of Cedarwood with a small amount of coconut or argan oil. Massage into your scalp
30-60 minutes before showering,
then wash and rinse hair as normal.

Traditionally used in skin care products for its cleansing properties, Tea Tree essential oil is great for all skin types but is especially suited for use on oily skin.

Use as a spot treatment by placing a drop
on the end of a cotton swab and dabbing lightly onto targeted areas of the face.

Add 1–2 drops to your daily application of shampoo
to nourish your scalp. Lather shampoo into hair and scalp, let sit a few minutes while enjoying its cool,
tingly sensation, and then rinse.
