Cedar Essential Oil -  Thuja Oil

  Thuja Essential Oil Profile (Cedar leaf Oil Profile)  Thuja is a well-known ornamental North American evergreen; it can reach a height of 70-80 feet, retaining its dense, pyramidal form. This hardy evergreen has a dense, scale-like foliage, waxy to the touch, and fragrant. The name Thuja is a Latinized form of a Greek word meaning 'to fumigate,' or thuo ('to sacrifice'), for the fragrant wood was burnt by the ancients with sacrifices. In America the wood is much used for fencing and palings, as a light roofing timber, and, as it is both durable and pliable, for the ribs and bottom of bark boats, and also for limekilns, bowls, boxes, cups, and small articles of furniture. The odor is pungent and balsamic and the taste bitter, resembling camphor and terebinth

 Thuja Oil Uses - American Indians have used leaf tea for headaches and colds, in cough syrups, and in steam baths for rheumatism, arthritis, congestion, and gout; externally, as a wash for swollen feet and burns. Doctors once used the leaf tincture externally on warts, venereal warts, gonorrhea, syphilis, prostate problems, toothache, whooping cough, piles, ulcers, bed sores, and fungus infections. It is also a Folk medicine cancer remedy. Both fenchone and thujone stimulate the heart muscle. The decoction has been used in intermittent fevers, rheumatism, dropsy, coughs, scurvy, and as an emmenagogue.
