Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil

The scent of Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil can be described as being warm, sweet, and tenacious, with a balsamic aroma. The Oil is a yellowish to orange-yellow or deep amber-colored. It is steam distilled from the wood, stumps, wood chips or sawdust of the tree.

The Aromatherapy Place offers a variety of Cedarwood essential oils to suit your preference. Cedarwood Atlas essential oil is different from Cedarwood Virginian, chemically and from the standpoint of its scent. The tree C. atlantica is a pine, not a cypress such as the Virginian cedarwood. However, Cedarwood Atlas essential oil is related to Cedarwood Himalyan, which grows at high altitudes in the Himalyan Mountains. Over time, treat yourself to a special sensual experience by trying and comparing the qualities of all our Cedarwoods:

Cedarwood Virginian
Cedarwood Himalyan
Cedarwood Texas
Cedarwood Chinese.

There are slight variations in odor, color, and the levels of constituents within each oil. However, the oils are similar and can be used in place of one another.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place: Some dishonest Companies combine botanical species to create a cheaper version of an essential oil. As an example, the most common Lavender type comes from Lavadula angustifolia. There is also a cheaper version which comes from Lavandula X intermedia. The two oils are combined, unbeknownst to you, resulting in a cheaper version of Lavender. Auroma guarantees the botanical species origin for each essential oil through testing and analysis, and states it on their product label so quality and origin are always assured.

Please note: Some essential oils, such as Aniseed, Cedarwood and Peppermint Arvensis will solidify in the cold. This is normal, they will melt and dissolve if gently warmed. At The Aromatherapy Place we immerse the whole sealed container in warm water.
