Cedarwood Mythology

Red cedarwood oils are actually a type of juniper, and the woody aromas are said to evoke a sense of inner strength. These oils have been important since practically the beginning of civilization. In ancient Egypt and Greece, the oil was used to embalm bodies. In ancient Sumeria, it was a base for paints. The oil was also used in medicines in Asia and is still used in Tibetan temples as incense. In the New World, Native Americans used juniper poles to designate hunting areas. These red poles led early French traders to name Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which means “red stick.”

This is the superior cedar wood. It has a rich red hue and a strong odor, making it useful in masculine blends.  This cedar wood is different in aroma from the American types (Virginia and Texas).
