What is Cedar Wood Essential Oil: Cedar Wood essential oil is a type of essential oil commonly used in aromatherapy (a form of alternative medicine). It’s sourced from the wood of the cedar tree (Cedrus atlantica). With a rich and woody aroma, cedar essential oil is said to offer a variety of benefits for mental and physical health.  Cedarwood essential oil is extracted through the process of steam distillation from the wood pieces of the cedar wood tree, which has the scientific name Juniperus virginiana (also known as Cedrus doedara, Cedrus atlantica, and Cedrus libani, depending on the regions where they are found) in other nomenclature systems. Cedarwood is basically a plant native to cold climates and is normally found at high altitudes. While there are several types of cedar trees, the health benefits of the essential oil remain the same regardless of the type. Throughout history, Cedarwood Essential Oil has been used by various cultures, such as Native American and Tibetan communities, to address ailments ranging from minor discomforts, including coughs and hiccups, to more severe illnesses. In Ancient Egypt, Cedarwood Oil’s antimicrobial and insecticidal properties made it valuable for use in mummifying procedures. In these and other societies, Cedarwood was also known to relax the body and mind, making it ideal for use in religious ceremonies and spiritual practices, such as communal prayer and independent meditation. Today, it continues to be used for similar applications as well as for cosmetic applications.     Cedar Wood Technical Data Sheet: Common Name: Atlas Cedar, Cedarwood, Atlantic Cedar  Latin Name: Cedrus atlantica Appearance: Viscous liquid.
