Product Abstract

Cedar forests once blanketed the high mountains of North Africa, but harvesting the timber has nearly brought the tree to its knees in countries like Algeria, where fires and unregulated cutting resulted in a steep decline in their population and range. Cedarwood essential oil has wide applications in aromatherapy as well as natural perfumery. It is said to be an aphrodisiac with an aroma that could be described as masculine but it appeals to both men and women.

History

As we’ve mentioned above, Cedarwood oil was popular among the people of Ancient Egypt. What they would do is they’d soak papaya leaves in the oil which would help to keep the mosquitoes away. But that’s not all; the Egyptians also used the oil to mummify the dead.

It’s hard to say when the oil was first used because a lot of history is undocumented. It’s not just the Egyptians and Sumerians though, there’s a long history of the tree and oil being popular among the Romans, the Chinese and even the Greek. It definitely sparks some curiosity into why all these civilizations chose to treat this essential oil with such high regard

Harvesting/ Extraction informatin

Cedarwood  essential oil is extracted by  Steam Distillation method. The plant material is placed in a large sealed container and steam is pumped through the cedarood material. The combination of heat and pressure causes the essential oil to separate from the plant material. Different plant parts require different distillation times which can vary from 20 minutes up to 8 hours. The steam distillation process is quite selective and not all the active ingredients in the plant material will end up in the essential oil. This is why essential oils can be different from herbs even if both come from the same plant material. The quality of the Cedarwood essential oil  can be significantly affected by the distillation process.
