Cedar Essential Oil is an exceptional product obtained through the steam distillation process of the wood of the Cedrus atlantica tree, originally from Morocco. Cedars are majestic trees that reach heights of 25 to 50 meters, with short, evergreen needle-shaped leaves that are grouped in clusters on short branches. Its crown, initially pointed, adopts a characteristic tabular shape after 30 years, with extremely horizontal branches.
