History of Cedarwood
The cedar tree has been an historical presence for ages and is known as one of the oldest aromatics. The cedar tree was once considered a symbol of prosperity and strength due to its enduring life and majestic growth. The Cherokees believed cedars contained the spirits of the departed and prayed to them often to keep their memories secure, while Egyptians used cedarwood essential oil for perfume and mummification purposes. Today, it is still burned in Tibetan temples to inspire a spirit of stability and safety and encourage reflection and eternal values.
