"Fresh and sweet Cedarwood Virginian is actually extracted from a tree in the Cupressaceous family. The bark of the tree cultivated in the USA and Canada is steam distilled, to release a fresh, woody essential oil. The Cedarwood tree has been utilised for many years, with Native Americans peeling bark from the trunk to make a host of objects from homewares to totem poles, and modern manufacturers using it to create bespoke furniture. In the practice of aromatherapy, Cedarwood Virginian is used in massage blends to boost circulation, ease aching muscles and help flush toxins out of the body. It is also naturally antibacterial and disinfectant and is often used in preparations to treat oily or problem skin. Much the same as Cedarwood Atlas, this oil can also be used in a steam inhalation treatment or diffuser as a decongestant, when suffering from cold and flu symptoms. "
