Cedarwood

A long-established essential oil, cedarwood has an impressive range of benefits. Both antiseptic and astringent, it balances and tones complexions and facilitates healing in infections and skin eruptions. Its uplifting aroma makes it a perfect pick-me-up, helping to release tension and lift feelings of lethargy.

The sacred Cedars of Lebanon in the Atlas Mountains are large imposing trees that can live for up to 2,000 years. As a symbol of protection and power, they have been so highly prized and sought after over the years that they are becoming an endangered species, so we make sure the oil we use is sustainably harvested. The scent of cedarwood is said to have a grounding, calming effect. The ancient Romans and Greeks burned the wood to scent the air. It was nicknamed the “Tree of Life” (arborvitae).
