The Spiritual Connection: Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood in the Bible:

So Solomon built the house, and finished it. And he built the walls of the house within with boards of cedar, both the floor of the house, and the walls of the ceiling: and he covered them on the inside with wood, and covered the floor of the house with planks of fir. 1 Kings 6:15,16, KJV

Wise King Solomon was not the first to understand the value of cedarwood – the Lord gave instructions to use cedarwood in a cleansing ritual found in Leviticus 14. The reflexology points of the thumb and big toe used are the triggers for clearing fear and mental blocks toward learning.

Today, we know that cedarwood essential oil (Cedrus atlantica) is comprised of 98% sesquiterpenes – the highest level currently known! This helps oxygenate the brain, supporting mental clarity.

When we are afraid, we experience a seeming paralysis of the brain. We can't think straight, we can't breathe deeply. By relaxing the mind, we are then able to take that fortifying breath to get the oxygen to the brain, so that we can think clearly and remember that God is still in control.
