About the Plant:

From deep within the forest, the mighty Cedar Atlas tree stands as the king, spreading a powerful exquisitely exalted fragrance.

“What the lion is in the animal kingdom, the cedar is among trees. Majestic and full of strength, Cedars stand tall in the loftiest regions of the mountains. They demand space for their expansive branches and stand undaunted by the elements in total inner harmony.

Cedar trees grow up to 10 feet high, and when undisturbed they may reach an age of 1,000 to 2,000 years. During biblical times, forests of cedar trees covered Lebanon and a large part of the Taurus Range in southern Turkey. The wood was honored as a symbol of strength, dignity, and nobility.” Complete Guide to Aromatherapy, Fischer-Rizzi

Where it Grows:

Atlas Cedar is native to the Atlas Mountain forests in Algeria and Morocco. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to have Organic Cedar Atlas from Morocco.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

The word Cedar appears in the Bible frequently, as a symbol of glory, strength, and royalty. In Latin, Greek, Arabic, and Hebrew, the words for Cedar are some versions of “stand firm”, and “power”. This is often meant in a spiritual sense in religious texts.

Atlas Cedar is believed to be the descendant of the original Lebanon Cedars, revered in Biblical times. Although it has been reduced to a mere 400 trees, the old Cedar forest that once covered Lebanon was once considered a sacred, mystical place, with many Cedar trees living between 1000-2000 years. 

“For many centuries, people came to pray and find comfort in the aura of these fragrant trees in the ‘holy forest’ on Lebanese mountain slopes. The warm, balsa fragrance filled the air, healing the traveler.” Complete Aromatherapy Handbook, Fischer-Rizzi

Only about 400 trees of this holy forest survive today.
