Native to Morocco, Atlas Cedarwood is high in sesquiterpenes. It is a good choice for facial serums and lotions for its astringent and skin nourishing properties. With sedative and calming attributes, it can be added to relaxing or sleep enhancing blends. Atlas Cedarwood is also commonly used for its benefits towards breathing and helping to clear congestion.
Atlas Cedarwood has a unique woody aroma with sweet, green undertones and a dry finish, and is typically known as having a masculine aroma.
Feel the warm, moist air on a Summer’s day out in the forest. Basically, that’s what cedarwood oil smells like. Because of this, cedarwood is oftentimes used in aromatherapy for grounding and self esteem applications. When you’re one with nature, you’re one with yourself. Calming, relaxing, free. And that feels good. Basically.
Cedarwood oil, though, has a long history of use dating all the way back to ancient Sumerians, who used the oil as a base for paint. Ancient Egyptians used cedarwood oil as one of their less costly embalming methods. The cedarwood works as an insect repellent, so it kept the bugs away from internal organs.
From embalming people to embalming furniture, cedarwood oil can add a fresh-cut-wood aroma to your wooden furniture. New life is bred into your old furniture, as new life springs up from within you when you smell it. Basically.
