Cedarwood Atlantica has been traditionally used in cedar chests and closets to deter moths. Many of us have a special mom or grandmother that passed down the cedar chest she received as a wedding gift.
I just love opening my mom’s cedar chest and smelling its wonderful aroma all these years later. Cedarwood Atlantica essential oil is clear to yellow in color with a strongly aromatic scent that is both dry and slightly sweet, woody and with hints of both balsamic and spicy.
In blends, Cedarwood Atlantica is considered to be a middle/base note.
