All About Oils

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood belongs to the woodsy family and has a warm, camphoraceous top note and smoky, balsamic undertone. It is the scent in wood-burning saunas, log fire and festivities. Cedarwood oil is very grounding, composing and relaxing and is ideal for the long evenings in.  To brighten it up, all you need is a citrus oil like Bergamot. We love the simplicity of a DIY Cedarwood perfume too—dab 1 drop on your wrists and you’re good to go.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

It blends beautifully with more woodsy oils, like Frankincense or Cedarwood but our all-time favourite is grapefruit (10 drops) and geranium (5drops) girly blend. Grapefruit has balancing and astringent properties and this makes it a fantastic addition to the skincare for acne prone, congested and oily skin.  Grapefruit oil, like all other citrus oils, works great in the kitchen.
