Cedarwood Historical Snippets:

Possibly one of the first essential oils to be extracted from a plant, Cedarwood oil had many uses. It was used as a base for paints by ancient Sumerians, while it was used to mummify bodies by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks as they believed it helped make one immortal. Cedarwood treated a number of varying maladies from urinary tract infections to bronchial infections. It was even used as an insect repellent. The Native Americans would burn the plant to be used in their rituals which they believed the smoke would carry their prayers to the Great Spirit.

Shelf Life of Cedarwood Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Cedarwood essential oil will last for 3-4 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
