Thyroid and adrenal issues can be indirectly supported by Cedarwood (if the underlying cause is a sluggish hypothalamus). As the hypothalamus is stimulated by sunlight, this gland can become less responsive and indirectly cause endocrine gland issues. The hypothalamus controls the pituitary gland, which directs all other glandular functions.
Cedarwood stimulates the mind and maintains steadiness, balance, and integrity.*
This scent improves spirituality because inhaling it relaxes the overly analytical mind, allowing for obsessive thinking to ease, and the spirit, or true essence to increase.* It has been used by many cultures for purification for many years.
Cedarwood purifies energy and releases toxic emotions that stifle spiritual growth.* Increases feelings of divine love, protection, and purpose. Highly useful for ADD children, helping to stabilize beta and theta waves.* Sesquiterpene content of 98%.
Cedarwood is an important component of our Focus essential oil blend. This focus blend is formulated for both ADD and ADHD, and contains many other similarly useful oils, such as Lavender and Vetiver.
Used in Many Cultures Throughout The Ages
Cedarwood is mentioned several times throughout the Bible and has been used to increase spirituality in cultures throughout the world, including Native Americans and Egyptians. An example is the Bible scripture: “And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall.” (1 Kings 4:33) Cedarwood is also mentioned four times in Leviticus, Chapter 14, as a cleansing ritual applied to the right ear, right thumb, and right big toe – all release points for various stored emotions and compulsive behavior.
I have used Cedarwood essential oil on some clients when they are going through a spiritual crisis, have thyroid and adrenal issues or need to stop obsessive thinking and increase their spiritual connection to God. I have used it myself and found healing for thyroid and adrenal issues, and now require 80% less glandular support. I found I could increase spirituality and connection with God more easily using Cedarwood on my forehead/third eye.
