Atlas cedar - Essential Oil 


Size: 5 ml  

Certified pure  

Origin: Morocco 


The Atlas Cedar is a majestic conifer that, by its comforting and solid aspect, makes us want to take refuge under it. Luckily, this is what we feel when we breathe in this essential oil; its reassuring scent totally envelops us. 


Among its many reported properties,1 it is indicated that this essential oil would fight against hair loss.  This was reported in a randomized controlled trial 2 conducted in double blind. Eighty-six patients divided into two groups participated. Each member of the first group had to massage themselves daily with essential oils (thyme, rosemary, lavender and Atlas cedar wood), with jojoba and grape seed oils as a support. While the second group had to use only the support oils in massage, also every day.  The study lasted 7 months and was followed up at 3 and 7 months. At the end of 7 months, 19 (44%) of the 43 patients in the active group (with e.o.) showed an improvement compared to 6 (15%) of the 41 patients in the control group (without e.o.).  The degree of improvement in photographic evaluation was significant (photographs evaluated by 2 dermatologists).  


In the same study reported this time in Jama Dermatology,3 a little more detail is explained: the oils were to be massaged into the scalp for at least 2 minutes. A warm towel was then wrapped around the head to facilitate absorption of the oils. Patients were asked to use this technique every night. Details of the essential oil blend used are given: Thymus vulgaris (2 drops, 88 mg), Lavandula angustifolia (3 drops, 108 mg), Rosmarinus officinalis (3 drops, 114 mg) and Cedrus atlantica (2 drops, 94 mg). These oils were mixed in a carrier oil, which was a combination of jojoba (3 ml) and grape seed (20 ml) oils. Conclusion of the trial: the results showed that aromatherapy is a safe and effective treatment for hair loss. Treatment with these essential oils was significantly more effective than treatment with carrier oil alone.
