Cedarwood Atlas Organic essential oil has many different applications.
It's great to add to a base shampoo or conditioner to treat greasy hair and scalps as well as dandruff. It can also be added to a base lotion or cream for greasy skin - it is fungicidal and antiseptic so many people have found it a useful oil when dealing with acne or similar skin conditions.
When blended for massage it's a good muscle ease and makes a good chest rub during the colder months.
When burned or vaporised it can relax the emotions and encourage deeper thinking.
Additionally it is a good insect repellent being particularly effective against moths and ants.
