- Thuja Oil
The health benefits of Thuja Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an anti-rheumatic, astringent, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, insect repellent, rubefacient, stimulant, tonic and vermifuge substance. Thuja is well known and is very popular as a decorative plant. Thuja occidentalis, also known as white cedar, is an evergreen coniferous tree, in the cypress family Cupressaceae, which is native to eastern Canada and much of the north, central and upper Northeastern United States, but is widely cultivated as an ornamental plant. It's smell may be very pleasant, but it is important to note that one should avoid excess inhalation of it, since it can produce irritation in the respiratory tract as well as nervous afflictions, since it is made of neurotoxic compounds. More about these effects will be covered along with the other medicinal properties of thuja in the section below.
