Because our pure Green Cedar Needle, Cedar-Lavender, and Rose Essences do not contain any water, they can be safely used on light bulbs to scent your rooms.

Joshua´s sister, Penny, wants you to know that these tips will also scent your entire laundry room!
Use Cedar-Lavender Essence when washing bed linens. Its aromatherapy formula will relax you and promote a restful sleep.
Cedar Mountain Mist
To freshen the paper filters in hand-held vacuum cleaners, which often smell very unplesant after several uses, lightly mist the filter each time you clean before putting it back in the vacuum. Misting the filter not only gets rid of the unpleasant odor, it also lightly scents the air as you vacuum.
Spray Cedar Mountain Mist on the walls of cedar closets and chests to enhance their protective properties. Spraying any unfinished wood (inside closets and bureaus) with mist will add a refreshing scent to those areas of your house.
Before grooming your dogs, spray their coats lightly with Cedar Mountain Mist. As you brush them, the scent will be dispersed through their hair. Fleas HATE the smell of cedar, so be sure to use this tip during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
