This Cedarwood Himalayan essential oil from Nepal, although aromatically similar to our other Himalayan Cedarwood from India, has captivating energy in its smooth sweet woody somewhat fruity aroma. Compared to our Indian Cedarwood essential oil this Cedarwood wildcrafted and distilled high in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal displays clear vibrant notes with a slightly less earthy side.
Cedarwood Himalayan has aromatic, astringent and antibacterial similarities to Cedarwood Atlas with the principal difference being a deeper fruitier note. Overall, Cedarwood Himalayan has a softer and less camphoraceous aroma compared to Cedarwood Atlantic (Atlas). Because Cedarwood Himalayan oil is smoother and sweeter it melds better in meditation and spiritual blends as well as natural perfume when a silky note of Cedarwood is desired. If diffusing for respiratory conditions, aroma-therapeutically our Cedarwood Atlantic is a preferred choice and the vibrational energy in Cedarwood Himalayan for meditation and spiritual purposes.
