Cedarwood oil: Our organic cedarwood oil is obtained from cedar trees, an evergreen tree that grows over 30 meters high. The cedarwood essential oil is extracted from trees in the Moroccan part of the Atlans Mountains, where they grow natively. Cedars can live up to 2.000 years and is a protected species. The essential oils are therefore extracted from the chips and shavings from certified sawmills.
Scent: This premium organic cedarwood oil has a naturally woody, warm, soft and slightly sweet and balsamic scent.
