Cedar Atlas Essential Oil

Cedar Atlas Essential Oil

Antiseptic, astringent and relaxing. Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil is steam distilled from the wood of the tree, and is a strong antiseptic oil with astringent properties that makes it ideal for teenage spots and greasy skin. It blends very well with tea tree oil, making it a broad-spectrum antiseptic treatment with a more pleasing aroma than using just tea tree alone.

In massage blends, Cedarwood Atlas Essential Oil helps to ease the muscular aches and pains associated with strenuous exercise or gardening etc. In common with several other essential oils, this oil imparts both a relaxing effect on the mind whilst simultaneously bringing an energizing and strengthening action to the body.

As part of a regular haircare regime, Cedarwood Atlas essential oil can help to control dandruff and keep the hair in great condition. A blend of rosemary and cedar atlas oils added to a fragrance-free shampoo and conditioner base will give tired, lifeless hair a welcome boost. In research, Cedar Atlas was shown to combat hair loss.

Cedarwood Atlas is an excellent inhalant oil for all types of respiratory conditions such as coughs and catarrh. It blends very well with tea tree, making it a broad-spectrum antiseptic treatment with a more pleasing aroma than using just tea tree alone.

More Information

Researchers at the Department of Dermatology, Aberdeen in the United Kingdom conducted a 7 month study in 1998 showing certain essential oils could treat Alopecia areata successfully. Essential oils stimulate hair regrowth due to their ability to stimulate the tiny blood vessels of the scalp where the hair follicles are created. This stimulation helps to increase the blood flow which carries the nutrients so vital to the follicles.

Eighty-six patients diagnosed as having alopecia areata, and the essential oils that they used in the research were as follows;

  • Cedarwood Atlas (Cedrus atlantica)
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
  • Thyme white (Thymus vulgaris)

Nineteen (44%) of 43 patients in the active group showed improvement compared with 6 (15%) of 41 patients in the control group (P = .008). An alopecia scale was applied by blinded observers on sequential photographs and was shown to be reproducible with good interobserver agreement (kappa = 0.84). The degree of improvement on photographic assessment was significant (P = .05). Demographic analysis showed that the 2 groups were well matched for prognostic factors.

The conclusion to this research was that treatment with these essential oils was significantly more effective than treatment with just the carrier oil alone (P = .008 for the primary outcome measure). They also claimed they had successfully applied an evidence-based method to an alternative therapy.
