Strong as Cedarwood

The wood from cedar trees is known for its resilience and its ability to repel pests like moths. Funnily enough, Cedarwood oil has a similar effect on life circumstances, helping to support and boost confidence in the midst of challenging situations, creating resilience and repelling pests in the events of life.

I am back at school at the Aromatic Wisdom Institute in Selinsgrove. It’s my last week here, when I will graduate with my certification as an aromatherapist.

Spring is in full swing, and the area is beautiful. I am so blessed to get to spend time from here, where it’s so peaceful and pretty!

As I’ve been taking in this gorgeous scenery, I am pondering both challenging and celebratory events going on in my life right now. I am reminded that in nature we see the ongoing cycle of changing circumstances, renewal, and new life. God in the Bible confirms this, that the world goes round and things change. But He promises that He will always stay the same – constant, supportive, and resilient.

I am so thankful for this strong, grounding hope. I am thankful that we can experience it in something as simple as oil from the cedar tree, enduring, grounding, and calming.

Cedarwood oil also helps removes excess mucous from respiratory system for those seasonal allergies, and also kills insects. It is dependable, it is protective, it is resilient.

And when the Bible says that creation bears witness to the glory of God, I can see what it means, even in a thing like cedarwood.
