Origin: One origin for this oil is obtained from the Atlas Cedar which is closely related to the biblical Cedar of Lebanon. Its therapeutic properties have been recognized since antiquity and it was used through ancient civilisations in medicine, cosmetics and perfumery. It was used by the Egyptians for embalming. It is still used today in Tibet as an incense. Another type of cedarwood was used by the Native Americans and is grown from a coniferous, slow growing evergreen tree with a majestic stature.
Sources: Cedarwood producers are Algeria, Morocco, East Africa and North America east of the Rocky Mountains. The applications of both oils and conditions which they treat are very similar.
