Arborvitae has a relaxing and emotionally centering scent. Ideal for usage when feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or suffering in life. It can also help to increase spiritual awareness.

I personally love Arborvitae because I love creating my own musky outdoor cologne because of its woody and warm aroma. For this reason, doTERRA’s Arborvitae essential oil is best combined with Cedarwood, Frankincense, Cassia, Cinnamon Bark and Eucalyptus. I also love diffusing this as it helps purify the air while providing a grounding aroma.
