Description

Cedarwood Atlas essential oil is majestic. Standing under a towering, ancient Cedar tree and gazing up at its soaring branches can be a transformative experience. Only nature can inspire us so deeply.  In the face of nature’s expansive beauty, everyday troubles disappear. Breathing in Atlas Cedarwood essential oil recalls the sense of awe and inspiration we find in the natural world. Interestingly, Cedar trees are renowned for denoting strength and peaceful dominion.

If a Cedar tree remains untouched and undisturbed by humans it can grow for nearly 2,000 years. King Solomon, an ancient King of Israel, had cedar trees planted around his temple. The trees still stand on Mount Lebanon today.

Atlas Cedarwood has a warm, woody and earthy aroma; it’s sometimes used in more masculine colognes but is just as lovely in aromatic blends for women. Its enchanting aroma can aid in mindful meditation, ‘grounding’ and is sometimes used as a romantic enhancer. Parisians have long used Atlas Cedarwood in lotions and shampoos to help prevent hair loss.

Native to the lands of Morocco and planted across Africa and the Middle East for centuries, Cedar trees can grow more than 140 feet in height and produce bluish-green leaves and cones. The essential oil is derived from the wood of the tree through steam distillation.
