Lydia Bosson describes in her book Hydrolatherapie: The cedar symbolizes dignity and strength. Your hydrolate and essential oil combat hypersensitivity and do not help you stay on the defensive. Experience shows that spirits are awakened and that both mind and body come to rest. The confidence gained helps to see the goals in life more clearly and to approach the future with more serenity. Carry it with you as a smell bottle and use it whenever you need this confidence and courage.
