Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil

Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil ProfileCedarwood Essential Oil is said to be one of the first crude essential oils to be extracted, and it was one of the oils that the Egyptians used for spiritual embalming purposes.

Aromatically, I love the rich, woody aroma of Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil. It is a base note that can help hold an otherwise flighty blend together well. Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil is said to act as an aphrodisiac. It also complements masculine blends.

Though I enjoy blending and diffusing Altas Cedarwood Oil throughout all four seasons, it's especially nice during the Fall and Winter months.

Emotionally, I find Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil to be grounding and calming, and it is said to help combat negativity. Atlas Cedarwood is an oil that I reach for at times when I'm faced with chaos or conflict and want a grounding oil for use during medatation or reflecting on the situation.

Additional uses for Atlas Cedarwood Oil are noted below.

This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. The oil photos are intended to represent the typical and approximate color of each essential oil.

General Safety Information: Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner.
