Sometimes referred to as Western Red Cedar, the Thuja tree is indigenous to the Northern areas of the United States and the Northern/Eastern areas of Canada. Many indigenous cultures often used thuja wood for totem pole construction for its soft texture, anti-decay features, and ability to ward off damage-causing insects. But in the realm of essential oils, the thuja plant contains one of the world’s most powerful, dynamic oils that is strongly advocated by holistic people and professionals across the globe.
Though the chemical composition and health advantages differ based on the type of cultivation and area (leaves or bark), the Rosemary Creek Thuja oil utilized steamed distillation, enabling the oil to feature a clear color, purifying camphor-like aroma, and exceptional full-scope wellness benefits that bolster life quality. Overall, this all-natural antiseptic and antibacterial resource holds a monumental number of medicinal and regenerative properties, which can now be optimally leveraged at any time with the all-new, seamless roll-on application.
Calming and Meditative Agent
Either rolling on perfectly pre-diluted thuja essential oil to the skin or inhaling the renewing aroma from the bottle can send waves of calmness, effectively toning down your adrenaline levels to feel more at ease. That is because thuja essential oil is an all-natural sedative with a reputation for regulating the body's fight or flight responses/rhythms to stresses.
Part of this effect is due to the fact that thuja oil contains an element called thujone, which is said to be a natural sedative. Its aromatic effects regulate body rhythms. In a spiritual sense, the aroma of thuja may reset the body’s energies, releasing stagnant energies of the heart which brings about a feeling of renewal. This very reason is why so many people love using thuja oil in the roll-on applicator to promote more elevated meditation experiences, as a simple roll-on swipe works wonders at quickly releasing stresses and amplifying mind, body, and spirit balances.
Helps Improve Sleep and Lower Anxiety
Along with the calming realities of thuja oil, this became the catalyst for improved sleep quality and lowered anxiety levels. It is no hidden secret that sleep is a vital part of one's wellbeing and is a key link in how energized/productive they will be each day. Furthermore, continuous lack of sleep is known to cause elevated anxiety, and anxiety is known to cause lack of sleep - making it a catch-22 scenario that can be remediated with thuja oil. In short, having the roll-on thuja oil nearby can significantly make life much more peaceful and zen-inducing both day and night.
Contains Potent Skin Disinfecting Properties
The intense amount of antibacterial and astringent qualities of thuja essential oil all equates to it being a keen skin disinfecting resource. Thuja essential oil is respected for being able to improve skin appearance and quality as a direct result of its deep skin-nourishing compounds and immunity stimulating capabilities that heal infections and deter them from arising again in the future.
Now with the roll-on applicator, combating common skin infections such as psoriasis, rashes, skin growth, and warts has never been more effortless and straightforward.
