Incense that uses Cedarwood as an aromatic compound has been used throughout history for its calming, healing qualities and benefits for stimulating creativity. Cedarwood is also known for being a valuable wood that is exported from North America. Premium cedar is often used when making high-priced musical instruments. However, combined with incense, this fragrance can become powerful enough to easily mask unwanted odors and purify the air of the room you are working in. Light an incense stick or cone and take with it the stench of our fast-paced world with a woodsy fragrance after rainfall.
As an aromatic compound from the bark and leaves of cedar trees, this ingredient has been used to make fragrances that renew the smell of natural cedar wood. It is combined with other ingredients like essential oils or other spices and herbs to create a distinct scent.
Fun fact! Did you know? Within its large family, the Atlas Cedar is probably the most picturesque out of the bunch. These trees have spreading branches and can grow as tall as 120 ft with a spread of about 100ft! It can be found on the mountains of Algeria in North Africa and Morocco.
The resin that is extracted from these trees come specifically from the needles, bark and the berries. Because of the varieties of cedar trees available the essential oils used to make incense come in different types as well. Most of which are not always used at the same time, whereas others are combined for a more potent mixture.
This fragrance specifically has certain warm properties, allowing you to pair it with other compounds like essential oils. Certain fragrant essential oils that we think pair well with Cedarwood are:
Using a combination of fragrances can be great, but you also need to be careful. Certain mixtures can be overpowering and can also create a scent that can be unappealing. We suggest not burning two incense sticks of different fragrances at the same time in a small room. Additionally, you will want to not light incense sticks or cones close to your pets or children and practice burning them in a well-ventilated area. Fun fact! Cedarwood oil also has a few benefits people tend to miss out on, like having the ability to repel certain bugs like fleas (Do not burn incense sticks close to your pets strictly because of this benefit). Consider using essential oils with the cedarwood fragrance that are safe for human contact.
