CEDAR | Calocedrus decurrens
Often referred to as arborvitae - ‘Tree of Life’ in Latin. Cedar has been used for healing, purification, and spiritual protection for thousands of years. When burned, Cedar acts as a purifier, cleansing the area in which it is burned and emitting a pleasant scent. It’s one of the four sacred medicines for the North American indigenous people, the other three being sweetgrass, sage, and tobacco. Cedar wood is known to have a sweet-woody, rich, and light balsamic fragrance that’s calming and elevating. The fragrance relaxes and harmonizes, while building inner confidence and self-acceptance. Research has shown that burning cedar incense activates ion channels inside the brain, which in turn alleviate any anxiety or depression.
