Description

Symbol of strength, wisdom and abundance, this rich and warmly soft species of cedar is used traditionally in Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicines as an incense ingredient to aid in meditation. Himalayan cedar boasts a rare and powerful combination of qualities that are both stimulating to the body but calming to the mind. Himalayan cedar is widely known for its soothing qualities to sore bodies and breath. This woody, delicious oil is a true tree nectar.

Compared with some essential oils, cedarwood has a relatively simple chemical profile, though it has a high percentage of aromatic compounds. As a tonic and calmative to the mind and emotions, it is useful in assisting with the anxious tension created out of our modern non-stop lifestyle when diffused or used in direct palm inhalation. Renowned for its calming and grounding properties, especially during stressful transitions, it promotes emotional equilibrium.

Cedar trees can live to be 1000-2000 years old, and in this lifetime they have exchanged plenty of “breath”. Cedar is one of our favorite oils used to sooth the lungs during periods of stress and discomfort during the challenging winter months. When you or the children are in need of such relief, combine cedarwood in your diffuser with some eucalyptus and chamomile and lavender.

Cedarwood in its strength and longevity has long been used to give the heart courage and enhance connection with the spirit, insight and good judgement. Cedar also has an affinity to the hair and skin, it helps to remove the lodged toxins in both and is a good cleanser and stimulant to adding back luster.

 

Cedrus deodara is derived from the Sanskrit word "devdar", meaning "timber of the gods". Cedar trees were often mentioned in the Bible and symbolized fertility and abundance. Ancient Egyptians smeared cedarwood over papyrus as a preservative. They also used it in the mummification process and for cosmetics and perfumery. It has traditionally been employed in Native American ritual to enhance spiritual communication. It is said to quell anger.
