The Atlas Cedar originated from the famous cedars of Lebanon which are referred to in the bible. It is a tall, evergreen tree with highly aromatic wood that can live for more than 1,000 years.
Cedarwood has been known since antiquity for its strength, and it was the wood that Solomon chose to build the Temple in Jerusalem. It is known as 'the tree of life' and the essential oil is believed to promote courage and strength. It is reputed to be the oil that David anointed himself with before fighting Goliath.
Cedarwood essential oil is steam-distilled from the wood chips and sawdust left over from the wood used for construction and furniture. It has been used for centuries for its aromatic scent and is particularly popular for use with men!
Atlas Cedarwood essential oil is slightly sharper in aroma than Virginian Cedarwood and is generally considered a finer and safer oil to use.
