Noted in the Bible for its highly aromatic wood, Cedar has been a popular ingredient in medicine and cosmetics since the ancient times. One of the most popular varieties of this tree is the Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica), native to the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean. The Atlas Cedar is a tall, coniferous evergreen tree with rigid, needle-like leaves that branch out in long shoots and cluster around shorter ones. Large green or purple cones covered by overlapping wooden scales grow on short stalks of the tree. The wood itself is a valuable material for building and storage due to its insect-repellent and decay-resistant properties. The highly aromatic essential oil is extracted from the heartwood through distillation.

Atlas Cedarwood essential oil is commonly used in aromatherapy to calm nervous tension and reduce the effect of stress. The essential oil has been found to be effective in the treatment of hypertension and stress-related problems, including insomnia, and adrenal burnout. Atlas Cedarwood is also a known antiseptic used to treat bronchial, vaginal and urinary tract infections. Its mucolytic properties make it an excellent cure for catarrhal conditions, such as chronic bronchitis. It is also used to treat cystitis and discharges.

Atlas Cedarwood essential oil is extremely useful for chronic respiratory problems, especially those involving a lot of mucus in the lungs. Due to its mildness, it can be used in a strong concentration, up to 25%, over the chest and upper back, or in a respiratory blend in a steam inhalation.

The smoky aroma of Atlas Cedarwood essential oil has woody, camphoraceous top notes and sweet, balsamic undertones.
