Cedar wood essential oil is the perfect oil to use for stress reduction. In ancient times Cedar wood oil was used by Egyptians to preserve mummies. It also works well as an expectorant and antiseptic.  Cedar wood has a woodsy, spicy and medicinal odor. This pure essential oil is great to use in massage oils and can be used to treat diseases, like arthritis, eczema and acne.

Chamomile essential oil is known for its calming affect. It is often used to ease symptoms of irritable-bowel syndrome and menstrual cramps. Insomnia and anxiety sufferers can benefit from the sedative qualities of chamomile. It is also an antiseptic used to sooth skin irritations. You can use it in a diffuser to scent a room or in a carrier oil for massage.

Cajeput pure essential oil smells a bit like camphor and is pale yellow in color. Cajeput essential oil will relieve muscle aches, oily skin, asthma, coughs, bronchitis and sinusitis.
