Nuts – food for the brain and heart, and oil – for a chronic cough and for oily hair.

Cedarwood has edible seeds that are a unique natural antioxidant. Cedar nuts are excellent food for the brain, liver, and heart because of the phospholipid content – cedar lecithin. They can be added to fresh salads and vegetable soups, creams and fruit salads.

Cedar oil was the first extracted vegetable oil. The ancient Egyptians used it in mummification. Phytoncides separated from cedar wood, in addition to the deodorizing property, have a strong bactericidal effect. Cedar butter has impregnated papyrus to protect it from harmful insects. It is expensive to use as a repellent, but it is very effective against mosquitoes, moths, and rats.

Cedar oil is colorless, thick and sticky. It is well combined with rose, juniper, and cypress oil.

Cedar oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin, soothes rashes and relieves pruritus. It is useful for acne, oily hair, and dandruff.

Cosmetic use of cedar oil against oily hair and dandruff:

  • Cedar tree oil 7 drops
  • Cypress oil 9 drops
  • Juniper oil 9 drops

Prepare 2% solution in a vegetable oil base (almond oil or olive oil). Fill a clean vial with the base oil and add the essences in drops. Close and gently shake.
Cedar oil is applied by massaging the scalp and left for at least 1 hour.

Then, to wash your hair, apply shampoo and shake it well before adding water, otherwise, it will wash off harder (Robert Tisheran’s recipe).

Appropriate for all catarrhal respiratory diseases due to the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects of cedar oil in the form of inhalation.

Use between 8 and 12 drops of cedar oil that drops on the surface of the hot water bowl about one liter. The traditional towel cover is not required here. Inhale slowly and deeply for about 10 minutes.

Sedative action

Simultaneously, relieving cough and improving breathing, cedar oil inhalation eliminates anxiety and nervous tension.
