Ive got some in the mail and will be applying it to my beard. Cedarwood is the "first" essential oil used in baldness remedies. I think its probably an anti-androgen topically. It will take about three months, but I'll let my friends here know if it workds at that time. I put some on a few minutes ago. Whats nice about testing cedarwood oil in particular is that we KNOW it isn't in any way bad for hair because its been used in a Scottish Alopecia Areata study and they regrew very signifigant amounts of hair in using it. There is no possiblility that it might be both anti-androgenic but also suppressive of hair growth as men have had very increased hairgrowth in testing with it for alopecia areata. If it were bad for hair...............they would not have had this. The best regrowth photo Ive ever seen was an alopecia areata patient who used cedarwood, thyme, rosemary, and lavendar. I'll report back whether I have an anti-androgenic result or no result at all.
