The white cedar comes from Morocco. You can get a red cedar which comes from North America, however we prefer the Cedrus Atlantica variety.


One of the oldest aromatics used as temple incense. The Egyptians used the oil extensively, particularly for mummification. The oil was once the eastern remedy for gonorrhoea when sandalwood was unavailable. In North America it was used for bronchitis, TB, and skin diseases. 'Mithvidat' a centuries old antidote against poisons had cedarwood as one of its ingredients.
