Looking for comments about using Cedarwood Oil if you have allergies toward Cedar Trees?
Janet M on Sep 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Cedarwood essential oil is a very highly concentrated extract of cedar trees. If there are known allergies to cedar, then there is potential of having a reaction to the Cedarwood essential oils. Thanks!
HI I would like to try this oil, my question is my mom before she passed away gave me her cedar chest which was popular in the 1950's to put things in for your wedding. I often store things in there and lift the lid to remind me of her. Does this oil give off the sent of an open cedar chest? Sorry that is the only way I can put this. The chest is lined with pure cedar wood and there is a special notch at the bottom to turn and release the cedar scent.

Thank you very much for your help!!!!!
The Badger on Dec 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Debe!

We have a bottle here in office and to myself it has a sweetness to it whereas to another team member, it smells slightly like a cedar chest. The scent may come across differently to each person who smells it.

-RMO Team
Cedrus atlantica is endangered in its native habitat, and C. libani is also vulnerable to extinction. What is the source material for this oil? I love the smell of cedar and would like to find an ethically sourced oil, e.g. tree-farm grown and not harvested in the wild.
A shopper on Sep 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Great question! Our Cedarwood is not wild harvested. It is sustainably farmed in the USA and Morocco.

Thanks! -RMO Team
Is this safe to diffuse with cats in the house?
Alexie C on May 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good question! At this time, we have found insufficient research about using essential oils on or around domestic animals, including procedures and possible reactions. Because of this lack of research, we are unable to advise how to use essential oils with pets.

For more information, we are happy to suggest some great books! Please see below:

- Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals: A Comprehensive Guide to the Use of Essential Oils & Hydrosols with Animals, by Kristen Leigh Bell

Usually “Cedrus atlantica” oil is called Atlas Cedarwood. Why is this oil just called Cedarwood?

Is this oil therapeutic grade? Can I add a drop to coconut milk or coconut oil and eat it?
Monica R on Nov 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not use the term Therapeutic Grade as this is not a regulated term or certification. However, we can always guarantee that our essential oils are 100% pure, natural, authentic and therapeutic essential oils. We work very closely with our sources, whom are experts, to be sure that we are getting the highest quality and purity possible. The farms that produce our essential oils have either gone through the process to become organically certified or the products are harvested in their natural habitats using only 100% pure and natural practices.

Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. We cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.

Is this cedarwood the same thing as thuja occidentalis oil?
Kathy H on Jul 5, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kathy!Thuja occidentalis and Cedrus atlantica are not the same. True cedars, such as our Cedarwood, are often used to help with respiratory and stress-related disorders. The beautiful and much nicer-smelling True cedars can also be helpful for skin conditions such as acne, dandruff, dermatitis, and eczema. Hope that this helps!Thanks!-RMO Team
