Atlas Cedar has a very distinctive warm, woody aroma. Antiseptic and regenerative, it is used as a general tonic and circulatory support. This oil is popular in many massage blends as part of a de-tox programme, to relieve congestion and sore muscles, or to reduce cellulite. It eases stress and tension, gives courage and fortitude, especially when blended with Bergamot, Lavender, Orange and Ylang Ylang. It can be added to closet or drawer sachets to repel moths, or used to refresh cedar closet blocks.
ABOUT THE PLANT
The cedar belongs to the pine family. The majestic looking conifer, which can reach up to 40 meters, has such a high content of essential oils that it is naturally protected from parasites and bacteria. Cedars are said to live up to 300 years and ward off evil spirits and negative energies. In the Bible, the cedar was associated with strength, greatness, dignity, and courage. The contained sesquiterpenes are known for their pain-relieving, wound-healing effects. If there is a lack of motivation, the cedar should awaken spirits.
