Quick Overview

pure Atlantic Cedarwood essential oil steam distilled from the wood of wild Cedar grown in Morocco. A round, full and rich Cedar oil, this species is most closely related to the Cedar of Lebanon.

Botanical Name: Cedrus atlantica

The reddish-brown barked 'Atlas Cedar' tree is a large, (135-165 feet tall) pyramid-shaped evergreen conifer native to the Atlas mountains of Algeria and Morocco. A member of the pine family, and direct descendant of the Lebanon cedars, 'atlas cedar' is not to be confused with the North American 'red cedar' tree in the cypress family. Red cedar produces an essential oil with an entirely distinct aromatic and therapeutic profile.

About the Oil
This Cedar essential oil is steam-distilled from the heartwood of wild Atlas Cedar trees, grown for this purpose in Morocco.
Aromatherapy Notes
This Cedarwood essential oil is yellow and viscous, with a warm floral top note a camphoraceous middle note and sweet, woody, balsamic undertones.

In "Aromatherapy Anointing Oils" by Joni Keim and Ruah Bull, Cedar is noted as "One of the most powerful essential oils for subtle energy work, Cedarwood is grounding, clears away negativity and brings in positive energy. It promotes clarity of mind and invokes the presence and teachings of the Divine."

Its woody-sweet warm aroma blends well with Rosewood, Bergamot, Boronis, Cypress, Jasmine, Juniper, Clary Sage, Rosemary and Ylang Ylang.

Traditional Uses
Cedar essential oil has been used in medicine and cosmetics throughout the ages. The oil from Lebanon cedar, a related species, was used by the ancient Egyptians for embalming purposes, cosmetics and perfumery. The essential oil was one of the ingredients of 'mithridat', a poison antidote used for centuries.

Cedarwood has been used as a temple incense by Tibetan Buddhists for centuries to enhance mental strength, endurance and certainty.

Cedar oil was used in Eastern medicine for both bronchial and urinary tract infections.
