Words by Mikaël

Arbovitae, appreciated for its perfume, is also called the white cedar of Canada or Thuya.

The Amerindians called it "the tree of life", because of its purifying virtues and action on injuries.

This is a family of a different Thuya than that of the Atlantic Cypress.

According to Dr. Daniel Pénoël and Sylla Sheppard, Arbovitae’s essential oil is an excellent anti-rheumatismal oil; astringente; anti-infectious; anti-allergen; and helps the body repair the cuts and injuries.

He's also known for his antifungal and antibacterial action.

This oil was the main ingredient in the famous Vick’s.

This oil is a repulsive natural insect.

It is also soothing for patients poison ivy and psoriasis.

Careful: Arbovitae oil is rich in thujone and must be used with caution and never internal.

It's better not to use it for more than two weeks at a time.

Maximize 10 drops per day directly to the affected area.

It blends well with other conifers, common tanzy and sage.

Words by Anny Schneider

Thuja occidentalis, our Canadian cedar, is wrongly called so because of its resemblance to Lebanon cedar (Cedrus atlantica) or Western red cedar (Thuja plicata), which has a similar bark, but is much larger in size and in diameter.

Cedar leaf, also called the tree of life, is a powerful sanitizer and repellent against unwanted organisms: mites, lice and fleas.

Very easy to use, pure or diluted as an essential oil or a hydrosol, it even cleanses grounds swarming with fungi, bacteria and viruses.

Several Aboriginal tribes called it the tree of life and used it as incense to keep away unwelcomeand / or obsessive entities, presences and memories.

⇒ Never ingest the essential oil of cedar nor diffuse it pure because it contains thujone, which is potentially epileptic.

Origin of this essential oil

This Thuya essential oil from Canada is distilled from the twigs of the tree.

Suggestions for use

In synergy in the diffuser or diluted in a vegetable oil for local application.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
