Cedrus Atlantica Manetti
Although native to the Atlas Mountains in Algeria, most of the essential oil production takes place in Morocco.
The essential oil is steam-distilled from the wood and stumps of the tree after they have been ground to pulp and sawdust.
Cedarwood atlas was used by ancient civilisations in medicine, cosmetics and perfumery. The Egyptions used it in embalming.
Cedarwood atlas oil has a tonic and stimulating action on the whole body, while at the same time reducing stress and tension.
It has a 'masculine' odour.
Avoid during first four months of pregnancy.
