Oil Fact Of The Day:
Plant Description There are many types of cedar trees, but all are coniferous, evergreen trees from the cypress family. Native to cold climates, cedarwood thrives in high altitudes, with the potential to grow nearly 100 feet tall. Juniperus virginiana, also known as red cedar, is a species of juniper that provides a very fragrant aroma—making it perfect for essential oil production.

Using oils with intention
Mind Map of MY COMMUNITY TREE
(to identify support systems already available).
Book Club/Social Club
Place one drop of dōTERRA Cedarwood in your left hand, activate it by rubbing your hands together and then raise your hands to your nose and inhale 3-5 times. Place your hands on your heart and breath another 3-5 times. Place your hands in your lap and breath another 3-5 times.
Take out your journal or a blank piece of paper. You are going to create a mind map of your community…..YOU are the trunk of the tree and each limb of the tree is one branch of your support system (this is groups of people…for example, yoga / book club / work peeps / besties….) Each person is a leaf or extension of each limb add people from that group. Note where people show up on multiple limbs…..Be creative! Scrap the tree idea if it isn’t resonating. One time I did this I did a connect the dots between people and realized just how my life weaves together so beautifully like a starfield!
