Cedars are ancient wonders living to 800 years old. Cedar comes from Arabic from the word “kedron” or power. Ancient Egyptians revered this gift from God and used cedars for embalming and in cosmetics. Some suggest that cedar wood was the first essential oil. It is mentioned  40 times in the Bible.  Its uses var,y however I love the aromatic calming, soothing and grounding properties. It has been used to soothe and reduce anxiety and anger. I love it and always put a splash in my flourish perfume.
