A to Z of essential oils

Arborvitae

Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in unique benefits.

Arborvitae essential oil contains group of chemical compounds that protect against environmental and seasonal threats and have powerful purifying properties. These compounds also contribute to Arborvitae’s natural insect repellent properties. Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in woodcraft and for preserving natural wood.

Emotionally arborvitae is the oil of divine grace. It asks individuals to take a deep breath and trust in the flow of life. It allows us to be more peaceful, surrender, relaxed and trust in divine grace.

I love arborvitae in blends to give a real grounding note. It is especially good with frankincense and wild orange.
