Cedarwood is a pyramid-shaped majestic evergreen tree, which grows up to 131 ft. high. The wood itself is hard and strongly aromatic because of the essential oil it contains, which is obtained by steam distillation. Originating in the Atlas Mountains in North Africa, linen chests were frequently crafted from Cedar. The ancient Egyptians prized the oil, mostly for embalming purposes, but also for cosmetics and perfumery, and Solomon's Temple was built with Cedar Wood. Today, closet liners and accessories are frequently crafted from Cedar, and the oil is currently used in commercial soaps, cosmetics and perfumes, especially men's colognes.
The components found in cedarwood oil include cedrine, cedrol, and thujopsene. These may have the following properties:antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, diuretic, insecticidal
and antifungal. Cedarwood Essential oil is excellent for the anxiety issues, the skin, and insomnia.
