Nootka Essential Oil


Nootka essential oil is distilled from the majestic cedar tree in Canada.  Native peoples along the west coast of British Columbia, once known as the Nootka tribe,  have had a relationship with nootka since the beginning of time.

It’s wood has been used to make everything from bowls to canoe paddles, to bows.  The bark is woven into hats, baskets, and clothing.

It’s oil is used as a medicine.  Nootka is considered a sacred provider for human beings, and is used in many ceremonies.

Nootka essential oil is cleansing, both physically and psychically.  Inhaling it brings a sense of clearing out turmoil, and lessening the resistance to change.

It clears and uplifts the atmosphere in homes and workplaces.  It brings the peace and clarity of mind from the forest into our indoor  spaces.
