North Atlantic Cedar Wood

Native to the Atlas mountains of Morocco, North Atlantic Cedar Wood (Cedrus Atlantica), also known as Atlas Cedar, is a coniferous evergreen tree. It produces a potent essential oil often called Cedarwood Atlas oil. This relative of the Cedar of Lebanon stands out among other evergreen oils because it is gentler on the skin.

Highly prized for its fragrant wood and medicinal oil, it is an excellent treatment for acne, dandruff, eczema, oily skin and psoriasis. North Atlantic Cedar Wood is antiseptic and astringent, and stimulates the circulatory system while breaking down toxins and fatty buildup within the body.
