Nootka tree essential oil... ever heard of it? This essential oil is steam distilled from one of the world's strongest cedar varieties called the Nootka cedar tree that is native to Canada. In this post I will spotlight Nootka essential oil uses and benefits, as well as some DIY recipe you can try.

This may not be a common oil in aromatherapy but definitely one that piqued my interest (like every tree essential oil I have ever met). It is said to smell like fresh pencil shavings and I must say that when I first inhaled the aroma, that is the exact scent I smelled.

It may not be for everyone, my husband wasn't a fan, but I do think it is worth trying if you are essential oil connoisseur. There's something very calming about it. I find it grounding, soothing, relaxing & inspiring!

General Essential Oil Precautions

Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucous membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified practitioner. Keep out of reach from children.

Use essential oils with extreme caution on children, be sure you have researched the oil and that it is safe for use on kids. Plant Therapy clearly labels their oils "KidSafe" on the bottle if the oil can be used for children ages 2–10).

If applying an essential oil topically (on your skin), you may perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body, use 1-2 drops in a teaspoon of carrier oil like jojoba oil, read more here.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, epileptic, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. For more information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
