This is hands down one of my favorite scents of all time) to purify your space from germs and support lung and sinus health. Add 25 - 30 drops to 1/2 oz sesame seed oil and rub on chest to address respiratory conditions characterized by excessive or thickened mucus, such as a chesty 'productive' cough. Use a 5% dilution to address cold sores and use at full strength to address plane warts. Add a few drops to shampoo to help stimulate your scalp and promote hair growth. To address any of the other conditions listed below blend 20 to 60 drops of oil in 3 1/2 oz base oil and apply to the part of your body you want to address. You may want to try adding a few drops to your face cloth mask before going out (no guarantee it will help but it certainly wont hurt). Add 1 tsp of Eastern White Cedar + 1 tablespoon rubbing alcohol to a 2 oz bottle, fill with water and shake before using, to clean surfaces. Any way you choose to use this oil it, will infuse not only the physical but energetic gifts into your life.

Key Vibrations: Friendship . Support . Aid . Spiritual Connection
This tree offers all connection, the web of light between all beings, all particles, and between, past, present, and future. Bringing wholeness to seeming duality and combines all energies, uniting all that was, is, or could be. When we lose awareness of this connection in our lives, we feel isolated, lonely and bereft.

This oil encourages supportive friendships and community building.
