Gary Young has said to use ANTI-CLOCKWISE (counterclockwise) circles when applying CEDARWOOD as it DE-PROGRAMS faulty DNA.  Then follow with CLOCKWISE circles when applying FRANKINCENSE as Frankincense has the ability to RE-PROGRAM the DNA correctly.

Perhaps, the most important things here, is INTENT???  After all, clockwise differs according to whether you are looking “up” or “down” at the circles.
