More information

Le cèdre de l'Atlas est un grand arbre majestueux originaire d'Afrique du Nord, Algérie (Aurès, Kabylie et Ouarsenis), Maroc (moyen Atlas, Rif, haut Atlas oriental), pouvant atteindre 40 à 50 mètres de hauteur, présentant souvent une cime tabulaire à l'âge adulte, de grande longévité.

Il ne doit pas être confondu avec le cèdre du Liban ni le cèdre de l'Himalaya.

Il existe une confusion possible dans l'appellation "cèdre" avec plusieurs autres arbres ou arbustes qui sont communément appelés "cèdres" alors que ce sont des cyprès, des genévriers ou des thuya et non pas des cèdres véritables.

Il vit dans les zones montagneuses à une altitude de 1500 à 2500 mètres.

Il est utilisé en charpenterie et pour la construction de coffres réputés répulsifs pour les insectes.

C'est une huile qui n'est pas recommandée en usage interne.


Il peut être utilisé en externe en :

  • Frictions circulatoires et drainantes (diluée dans une huile végétale, en synergie avec d'autres HE)
  • Soin des cheveux et du cuir chevelu
  • Applications locales dans les mycoses (mélangée avec d'autres HE)
  • Diffusion atmosphérique
