Cedarwood essential oil (also called Libanol) is distilled from the wood of the Cedar tree. It is one of the oldest essential oils, used in North Africa as a perfume and medicine.

In Ancient Egypt it was used both for preserving mummies and as a massage oil. In the nineteenth century it was found to have antiseptic properties.

Distilled from managed plantations controlled by the Royal family. Often found as anti-moth balls. On the skin has an astringent effect so useful for oil prone skin and beneficial in hair products.

Smells quite different to American Texas or Virginia 'ceders'. Smells a little like mimosa and cassie with a woody undertone.
