Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil is steam distilled from wood pieces of the Cedrus atlantica botanical. It has a thin consistency and ranges in color from Golden Yellow to Brown. Its sweet, woody scent – sharper than that of Virginian Cedarwood and comparable to that of mothballs – has characterized this oil as a traditional aphrodisiac. Its warming scent also contributes a harmonizing quality that makes it complementary to ‘masculine’ aromatherapy blends and men’s fragrances. With skin conditioning properties, Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil is commonly used to cleanse skin and to soothe irritating and inflammatory conditions, such as acne. Furthermore, it is believed to be ideal for addressing respiratory discomforts, stress, joint pain, and inflammation; however, it is best known for its reputed ability to reduce hair loss and promote hair growth. Additionally, Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil is often used to enhance concentration, ease spasms, eliminate fungal infections, improve digestion and organ function, to firm skin and muscles, and to normalize the menstrual cycle.
