About the Plant:

Himalayan Cedar is closely related to Moroccan Atlas Cedar, and the oils are chemically very similar. Both are grounding and give a connection to the Earth. However, the aroma of the Himalayan Cedar is several notches finer and carries the spiritually elevating quality of the Himalayas. 

Where it Grows:

Himalayan Cedar

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Deodara, part of the Latin name of Himalayan Cedar (Cedrus deodara), comes from the Sanskrit word Devadaru, translated as “wood of the gods.”

The ancient Egyptians, who mastered the art of preserving their dead on Earth, meticulously embalmed the bodies of their rulers with Cedar Essential Oil, and placed them to remain, undecaying, surrounded by the opulence they enjoyed while alive.

Cedar is also mentioned in the Bible as a symbol of abundance and fertility; more recently it has been used in aromatherapy with good results in the treatment of chronic bronchitis.
