- origin Morocco, wood, steam distilled
The Atlas Cedar tree is native to the Atlas mountains of Algeria, and the oil is produced in Morocco. Many people know the aroma of American cedars from chests and exterior construction or perhaps have smelled a Virgina or Texas cedar which are all quite different. The Atlas cedar has a sweeter, more well-rounded woody-balsalmic aroma. While not being as deep as Sandalwood it serves as a reasonable, inexpensive substitute to bring a wood base note into your blends.
The wood has an abundant amount of oil which has a yellow/amber cast to it. It was used by the Ancient Egyptians for mummification due to its antiseptic and preservative qualities. It has also been used as a temple incense. The wood was prized for building because of its insect resistant qualities. The tree can reach over 130 feet in height.
Energetically cedar has a grounding property to it. It is stabilizing and calming without putting the user to sleep. It is often used to cleanse and protect spaces from negative energies. Tree-like qualities include being deeply rooted while reaching skyward. Trees are stable, patient, and enduring. This tree in particular carries its own protection within itself, the oil you can use in your own home and practices.
Atlas Cedarwood essential oil is nontoxic, non-irritant, and non-sensitizing, making it very suitable for skin application. Some sources advise avoiding during pregnancy.
