Our True Cedarwood Essential Oil Set contains the finest quality Atlas Cedarwood and Himalayan Cedarwood essential oils. These two Cedarwood varieties are known as the truest Cedars and are extracted from trees of the Panacea
family. Since they share the same plant family, Himalayan and Atlas Cedarwoods do have many similar properties,
however, they do have their own subtle and unique differences.
Essential Oils contained in the True Cedarwood Essential Oil Set:
Cedarwood Himalayan (Cedrus Deodora): Extracted from the cedar trees in the Himalayan Mountains, this Himalayan Cedarwood essential oil is slightly sweeter and has stronger middle notes than the Atlas Cedarwood.
