Arborvitae is a Cedar tree found in Canada. The oils is sourced in a sustainable way. Arborvitae is also referred to as the ‘tree of life.’ Some trees are 800 years old and have no signs of bugs.
Arborvitae essential oil is concentrated in tropolones. This is a group of chemical compounds that protect against environmental and seasonal threats and have powerful purifying properties. Tropolones is not found in any other essential oils. Tropolone has been studied for its ability to protect against common threats in the environment. “Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in woodcraft and for preserving natural wood surfaces.”1
Use Arborvitae topically and aromatically only.

Immunity Blend: Here is the immunity blend that I use often. For Adults, you can multiply this blend by 4 and put this blend in a 10ml roller bottle. For children 5+ multiply by 2. For infants just make this blend as is. Fill up the rest with Fractionated Coconut Oil whether you are making this blend for adults, children or infants. Rub on feet daily for immunity boosting.

Arborvitae is the Oil of Divine Grace. According to the Emotions & Essential Oils, the negative emotions Arborvitae oil helps to shift are the following: Willful, struggling, excessive effort, distrust, rigid, fearful, need to control
When we stress and worry, we stop our body from sharing energy with the rest of the body. When we do that, most of the energy goes to our head and the rest of our body suffers. Our body ‘holds on’ and waits for us to relax. Many people experience constipation because their body is not allowing food to flow freely. Also during this Sympathetic state, our heart races too fast causing higher blood pressure. You see why we need to constantly seek balance?
The positive properties we can adopt are the following: Peace, surrender, grounded, allowing, relaxed, grace-filled, effortless living, trust in Divine grace.
Create positive affirmations with this list of positive properties to help you be calmer. There are those who are passive and those who are proactive. Arborvitae helps those overly proactive and overly self-reliant to balance up a bit and make room for Providence. I like to remind myself to ‘Make Room for Miracles!’
Calming & Grounding: Use during meditation for a sense of peace and calm. Arborvitae also helps you balance in life. You will know what to hold onto and when to let go of things.
Uplifting: Put in a necklace diffuser and smell. Mix Arborvitae with your favorite uplifting blend too.
Trusting in the Divine: Rub Arborvitae over the heart and heart reflexes and repeat positive affirmations such as the following.
>>I surrender fully to the Divine
>>I allow myself to be easily be guided and led
>>I accept and choose peace and relaxation
When we are willful, rigid, and need to be in control, it is a sign that we are operating in fear. Use this as a clue and opportunity to change. Move from fear over to faith.
When we let God and the Universe ‘drive’ we are taken on a wonderful ride. Remember you don’t have to know everything to move forward. Let go of all those breaks. Trust in the Divine and you will see that life is beautiful. The word Arborvitae in Latin means “to sacrifice.” When I get scared or doubt, I like to say, ‘burn my pride/ego’ on the altar and just move ahead.
Things will always work for your benefit if you stop resisting, relying less on your limited understanding and trust more of the Divine grace. Your physical body will be more resistance to the worldly influences so it is stronger. It all starts from inside of us. 4
