A unique wood oil, Atlas Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) is often thought of as a masculine oil, which sets it apart from many other essential oils. It can be used as a base note in a variety of recipes and is especially effective in outdoor patio sprays where it blends well with citronella, lemon eucalyptus, geranium, and other essential oils.
Aura Cacia Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil comes from Morocco. In the past two decades, Morocco has made significant replanting efforts after Atlas cedarwood trees were overharvested for over 100 years. There are now young groves of cedar throughout the Atlas mountains. After the wood is processed in a sawmill, the oil is distilled from the scraps and sawdust.
