Plant Therapy Organic Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil
Atlas Cedarwood has been traditionally used in cedar chests and closets to deter moths. Many of us have a special mom or grandmother that passed down the cedar chest she received as a wedding gift.
I just love opening my mom’s cedar chest and smelling its wonderful aroma all these years later. Atlas Cedarwood essential oil is clear to yellow in color with a strongly aromatic scent that is both dry and slightly sweet, woody and with hints of both balsamic and spicy.
In blends, Atlas Cedarwood is considered to be a middle/base note.
Atlas Cedarwood can be used as part of an insect blend along with Citronella, Lemon Eucalyptus, and Catnip Essential Oils. Atlas Cedarwood can help support healthy respiratory function; diffuse equal amounts of cedarwood and pine oils together to make a soothing aroma which can help with respiratory problems associated with pollen.
It can also be mixed with a carrier oil and rubbed on the upper chest to help ease congested breathing.
Also, to promote a healthy, flake-free scalp, add a few drops of Atlas Cedarwood to your favorite shampoo. Men especially love Atlas Cedarwood oil because of the crisp, masculine scent it gives to aftershave and other personal care products.
