Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil
Cedarwood essential oil can ease aches and pains and is especially good in cosmetic preparations for oily skin and dandruff. Helpful for respiratory complaints, Cedarwood can be used in a steam inhalation to help with coughs and congestion. It's also an excellent oil for repelling insects.
Emotionally, Cedarwood atlas is a very grounding essential oil, especially good for those times when you're feeling scattered or under a lot of stress. Diffuse it when you are having trouble concentrating, feel out of sorts or have become exhausted from accumulated stresses.
