Cedarwood

Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil

Cedarwood atlas essential oil comes from the steam-distillation of wood shavings and sawdust sourced from Moroccan sawmills. Atlas Cedarwood trees are protected by Moroccan Royal Warrent, so no trees are deliberately felled solely for the production of the essential oil. The sawdust and wood chippings are collected from the furniture factories and used in the distillation process. Our supplier sources this Atlas Cedarwood Essential Oil directly from the distiller in Morocco.

This adds a warm woody odour.

Elemi Essential Oil

Elemi Essential Oil

Elemi Essential Oil is produced by the steam distillation of the freshly collected yellow gum of the Canarium luzonicum (Elemi) tree. Our elemi oil is wild-harvested in the Philippines, with the main collection done from January to June each year. Collectors male an incision in the tree and this exudes a thick white coloured gum. This gum darkens and turns brown during prolonged contact with the air.

Elemi adds a fresh, spicy pepper aroma with a green woody, slightly balsamic note.
