Origin & History
Cedar oil originally came from the Cedar of Lebanon, but due to over-exploitation these trees have all but nearly disappeared. The essential oil today is now produced from a variety of other trees, with the most preferred being the Atlas Cedar which can be found growing in the Altlas Mountains of Morocco and Algeria.
It is said the Egyptians used Cedarwood oil extensively within the process of embalming or mummification, in cosmetics and to protect them from insects.
Cedarwood can make a lovely blend with other similar 'tree' oils, you could try mixing it with bergamot, cinnamon, cypress, frankincense, jasmine, juniper, lavender, lemon, neroli or rosemary.
How to Store Your Oils: Essential oils can be quite delicate substances and factors such as strong light, heat, air and moisture can affect them. They are best kept in a cool, dark and dry place ideally in a box and in a cupboard. We wouldn't recommend transferring your essential oils into plastic bottles as the plastic can interact with the chemical makeup of your essential oils and may cause the plastic to deteriorate. Keeping them in their dark, amber bottle with the lid will prolong their life. Oils that are stored in the correct condition should last for years (citrus oils have a slightly shorter life).
Size: 10ml, presented in an amber glass bottle.
