I have personally used Cedarwood to help me sleep.
I know many people who have put it in their shampoo to help grow and thicken their hair. Many who use it in their shampoo also have noticed that their nails are growing longer as well. Many ladies have also put a drop of Cedarwood and a drop of Lavender in their mascara to help strengthen, grow, and make their eyelashes thicker!
Cedarwood is part of the 12 Oils of Ancient Scripture Oil Collection. In ancient times it was used for embalming, as a disinfectant, in a cleansing ritual for leprosy, as an insect repellant and my help clear many buried emotions.
King Soloman built his temple and palace out of the Cedars of Lebanon. Cedarwood has the highest concentration of sesquiterpenes which oxygenate the brain and support clear thinking (a good thing for a ruler to have). Today the Cedars of Lebanon are endangered.
