Cedrus Atlantica

Country of origin: Morocco

Cedarwood is an evergreen

native to Africa that is

cultivated in Asia and can

grow up to 130 feet. It

has needlelike leaves and

can live as long as 2,000

years. The oil is extracted

from the cedar’s sawdust

and wood and has a sweet,

deep, camphor-like aroma.

Cedarwood is believed to be the first essential

oil ever made. Ancient Egypt considered it their

most important oil. It was used daily in cosmetics,

embalming, and as a deterrent to insects.

Native Americans believed that the Great Spirit

created cedarwood as a healing tree. They also

taught that the earth mother supplied cedar with

blood because of its deep red core. When burning

cedar, they discovered its healing powers to the

respiratory system. Deeply cleansing, cedar bark

was considered a sacred purification plant.

Cedarwood is highly aromatic and imparts a

calming essence for a harried society. As with other

essential oils, Cedarwood is exceedingly beneficial

for all skin types. It is particularly beneficial for

blemished or troubled skin and as a support to the

respiratory and immune system. These benefits

make cedarwood ideal oil for the winter season.

Cedarwood’s aroma helps to promote spirituality,

balance and sense of tranquility.

For sensuality

Cedarwood is believed to enhance the senses

and relax the body. People have long relied on

the oil to help create an atmosphere of romance

and sensuality. Cedarwood combines well with

jasmine, neroli, sandalwood or patchouli.
