Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

When I first smelled Cedarwood essential oil, I honestly thought that it smelled like cat urine. But after only a month, I have grown to like the warm scent.

I placed a roller ball in the orifice of the bottle for easy application because I use Cedarwood essential oil so much. In fact, I use it for the following:

1. Cystic acne breakouts. Applied neat (undiluted), Cedarwood has really helped with the bigger, more painful breakouts.

2. Deep sleep. I apply Cedarwood neat to my big toe. At first I applied to both big toes but felt groggy in the morning. I have found that application on one toe is enough.

3. Making my thinning hair in the front of my hairline appear thicker. I have new baby hairs sprouting up! I just roll the Cedarwood essential oil all along my hairline before bed.
