The scent of cedarwood atlas oil is warm and soft, with a woody base note, and an odor intensity of about three out of five. Blending companions include bergamot, fibrals, resins, and clary sage. For physical ailments, cedarwood is relaxing, and is reputed to have aphrodisiac qualities. It is also beneficial to the circulatory system and eases dandruff and acne. For emotional complaints, the oil assists with meditation, self-control, grounding, emotional strength in a crisis, and determination. The cedarwood tree is also known as Lebanon cedar or Himalayan cedar, and was used for health benefits in Tibet, as an incense in the East, and as an embalming herb in Egypt. The wood was also treasured as a naturally insect-repellent building material.

All pure essential oils should be used with care. Do not apply directly into skin. A 2% dilution of essential oils to a base of carrier oil or lotion is recommended for all skincare and massage preparations.
Unlike the oil extracted from Virginian cedarwood, Atlas cedarwood oil is not known to be an abortifacient. None the less, the aromatherapy associations advise against the use of this essence during pregnancy. The oil may irritate sensitive skin.
Do not confuse this precious fragrance with the juniper oils, also sold as cedars, or the very toxic Thuja oil, also known as cedar leaf.
USAGE: Add 1-3 drops of Bianca Rosa® essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil for massage or skin care needs. Add 5-15 drops (depending on strength desired) to bath water. Add a few drops of oil to a water-filled spray bottle to create a refreshing room spray, or add to diffusers to create warm room scent. CAUTIONS: Always do a test patch when applying oils to the skin (particularly citrus oils) to determine if itching, soreness, or redness develop. Store away from heat and light. Keep away from eyes, nose, and mouth. Bianca Rosa® essential oils are for EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
