For many people, Friday the 13th is a holiday that carries ominous overtones and is considered unlucky in Western culture. It’s a day which occurs at least once every year and may occur up to 3 times in a calendar year. There are two Friday the 13th this year – today and in July 2018. There are two in 2019.

I always try to use a different essential oil that can be aromatic on Friday the 13th. For the last two years I have used essential oils daily. For me it has been uplifting and a reminder that the past is truly in the past.

Today I will use one of the oldest known essential oils – Cedarwood. It is an all around tonic and stimulant. It does treat an individual with a sluggish system. When a little melancholy, it is as great an oil as it is exhilarating.

Until tomorrow...
