Cedarwood oil is said to prevent wounds from becoming septic as well as protecting them from tetanus germs. By defending the body against toxins, cedarwood essential oil relieves the white blood cells and the immune system of the extra stress, which allows them to protect the internal functions.

Ancient Wisdom has been sourcing and bottling essential oils for over 22 years and studiously selects all of its oils, which are more often than not bought from primary sources. All oils are tested for purity and subjected to rigorous quality control standards. Organic oils are derived from plants that are not grown using pesticides, fertilizers or other chemicals.
Please note that essential oils, while delightful, versatile and generally wonderful, are also very concentrated and contain active ingredients. They should not be ingested, be kept out of the reach of children and animals and diluted before use. Some have specific contraindications, and some should be avoided during pregnacy. The information on this website is for guidance only. It is not medical advice. We strongly recommend looking up the uses, properties and contraindications of the oils you intend to use. Also please consult a trained aromatherapist, medical practitioner, or other practitioner skilled in the use of essential oils if you are looking to treat a specific condition.
