Cedarwood,  is a slow growing evergreen tree that grows in the east of America and south-east Canada.  It is not actually classed as a true ‘cedar’ as it belongs to the Cupressaceae family and not the Pinaceae family to which Atlas Cedarwood belongs. The essential oil is steam distilled from sawdust and other timber waste and is used extensively for fragrancing a wide range of toiletries and cleaning products.

When used therapeutically the oil’s properties are very similar to those of Atlas Cedarwood – although the latter does tends to be the favoured choice for many aromatherapists. Often used in blends for men due to its woody, masculine fragrance.
