  • CEDAR HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    There are many species of evergreen that fall under the category of Cedar, some of which are true cedars and other are not actually eedars, but are use cedar in their common names and are grouped together. Cedar oil, also known as Cedarwood oil, is an essential oil derived from the foliage, and sometimes the wood and roots, of various types of conifers, most in the pin or cypress botanical families. It has many uses in medicine, art, industry and perfumery, and while the characteristics of oils derived from various species may themselves vary, all have some degree of bactericidal and pesticidal effects. Uses may vary between botanicals, so be sure you know you are using the correct herb for your purposes. Some of the botanicals discussed in this article are the following:

    CEDAR ESSENTIAL OILS

  • Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) is also known as Atlas Cedarwood, Atlas, and Cedar.
  • Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) is also known as Virginian Cedarwood.

  • CEDAR HERBALS

  • Cedar Berry (Juniperus monosperma is also known as One-seed Juniper, Cherrystone Juniper, Redberry Juniper, New Mexico Cedar, West Texas Juniper, and Sabina.

  • ATLAS CEDAR (CEDRUS ATLANTICA)

    Atlas Cedarwood or Atlas Cedar is a pyramid-shaped majestic evergreen tree, that can grow up to one hundred and thirty feet high. Atlas Cedar, is an evergreen native to the Atlas Mountains of Algeria in Africa that is cultivated in Morocco, in Asia. Even though the wood is hard it is very aromatic because of the high percentage of essential oil it contains. Ancient Egyptians used Cedarwood oil for embalming, cosmetics, and perfumery, while in the East was used for infections, as a preservative, and as incense.

    A majority of the modern sources treat Atlas Cedar as a distinct species, but some sources consider it a subspecies of Lebonon Cedar (C. Libani subspecies atlantica). Fully grown, Cedrus atlantica is a large coniferous evergreen tree, and can grow up to 130 feet tall with a trunk diameter up to 78 inches. It is very similar in all characteristics to the other varieties of Lebanon Cedar; differences are hard to discern. The mean cone size tends to be somewhat smaller (although recorded to about 4.5 to 5 inches, only rarely over 3.5 to 4 inches, compared to other species. It has needle-like leaves and, if left undisturbed, can live as long as 2,000 years.

    Atlas Cedar is common in cultivation as an ornamental tree in temperate climates, because it is more tolerant of dry and hot conditions than most conifers. An Atlas Cedar is planted at the White House South Lawn in Washington DC. President Carter ordered a tree house built within the cedar for his daughter Amy. The wooden structure was designed by the President himself and is self supporting so as not to cause damage to the tree.

    Cedarwood was one of the first fragrant plants used by the Egyptians as an ingredient for cosmetics, perfumes and the mummification process. In addition, Native Americans burned Cedar for purification. Today, Cedarwood oil is used in cosmetics, fragrances and household products. The oil is extracted from the cedar's sawdust and wood and has a scent that is deep, sweet and camphor-like. Cedarwood oil is known for its calming and numerous healing properties. An antiseptic and astringent, it relieves many types of skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, oily skin and acne, as well as upper respiratory and urinary tract infections. Its aroma helps to promote spirituality, balance and a sense of tranquility.

    VIRGINIA CEDARWOOD (JUNIPERUS VIRGINIANA)

    Virginia Cedarwood, also known as Juniperus Virginiana, Eastern Red Cedar, Red Cedar, Eastern Juniper, Red Junipter or Pencil Cedar, is a species of Juniper native to eastern North American from southeastern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and east of the Great Plains. Further west it is replaced by the related Rocky Mountain Juniper (J. scopulorum) and to the southwest by Ashe Juniper (J. ashei). The Lakota Native American name is Chansha, "redwood" or Hante'. In its native range it is commonly called "cedar" or "red cedar", names rejected by the American Joint Committee on Horticultural Nomenclature as it is a Juniper, not a true Cedar. However, "red cedar" is the most used common name.

    Juniperus Virginiana is a dense slow-growing coniferous evergree tree that may never become more than a bush on poor soil, but is ordinarily from 16 to 66 feet, rarely to 89 feet, tall, with a short trunk 12 to 39 inches (rarely 67 inches) in diameter. The oldest tree reported, from Missouri, was 795 years old. The bark is reddish-brown, fibrous, and peels off in narrow strips. The leaves are of two types, sharp, spreading needle-like juvenile leaves 2 to 3.9 inches long, and tightly adpressed scale-like adult leaves 0.079 to 0.16 inches long. They are arranged in opposite decussate pairs or occasionally whorls of three. The juvenile leaves are found on young plants up to 3 years old and as scattered shoots on adult trees, usually in shade. The seed cones are 0.12 to 0.28 inches long, berry-like with fleshy scales, dark purple-blue with a white wax cover giving an overall sky-blue color (though the wax often rubs off). They contain one or two (rarely up to four) seeds, and are mature in 6 to 8 months from pollination. They are an important winter food for many birds, which disperse the wingless seeds. The pollen cones are 0.079 to 0.12 inches long and 0.059 inches broad, shedding pollen in late winter or early spring. The trees are usually dioecious, with pollen and seed-cones on separate trees.

    Virginia Cedarwood pollen is a known allergen, although not as potent as that of the related Juniperus ashei (Ashe juniper), which sheds pollen a month earlier. People allergic to one are usually allergic to both. Virginia sheds pollen as early as late winter and through early spring. Consequently, what begins as an allergy to Ashe juniper in the winter, may extend into spring, since the pollination of the eastern juniper follows after that of the Ashe juniper.

    CEDAR LEAF (THUJA PLICATA / THUJA OCCIDENALIS)

    Thuja Cedar (Leaf) is native to North America, and was once used by the Native Americans to create canoes, earning it the title "Canoewood". It was later affectionately nicknamed 'Arbor Vitae', a French term for Tree of Life, after supposedly curing one of Jacques Cartier's men of scurvy during a 16th century expedition. As a result, Thuja occidentalis was imported to Europe for its medicinal properties, but now is primarily viewed as an ornamental tree.

    Thuja occidentalis is an evergreen coniferous tree, in the cypress family Cupressaceae, which is native to the northeast of the United States and the southeast of Canada, but widely cultivated as an ornamental plant. Unlike its closely related species, Thuja plicatak it is only a small tree growing to a height of 33 to 66 feet tall with 1.3 foot trunk diameter. The tree is often stunted or prostrate. The bark is a red-brown, furrowed and peels in narrow, longitudinal strips. The foliage forms in flat sprays with scale-like leaves 0.12 to 0.20 inches long. The cones are slender, yellow-green ripening brown, 0.39 to 0.59 inches long and 0.16 to 0.20 inches broad, wiht 6 to 8 overlaping scales. The branches may take rot if the tree falls. The species was first described by Carolus Linnaeus in 1753, and the binomial name remains current. The name Arborvitae is particularly used in the horticultural trade in the United States. It is Latin for Tree of Life due to the medicinal properties associated with the sap, bark and twigs. Despite its common names, it does not belong to the Cedar genus.

    Thuja plicata is a species of Thuja, an evergreen coniferous tree in the cypress family, native to western North America. Despite its common names, it does not belong with the true cedar genus. The provincial tree of British Columbia, it has extensive applications for the indigenous First Nations of the Pacific Northwest. It is a large to very large tree, ranging up to 213 to 250 feet tall and 9.8 to 13.1 feet in trunk diameter. Trees growing in the open may have a crown that reaches the ground, whereas trees densely spaced together will exhibit a crown only at the top, where light can reach the leaves. It is long-lived; some individuals can live well over a thousand years, with the oldest verified being 1460 years. The foliage forms flat sprays with scale-like leaves in opposite pairs, with successive pairs at 90 degrees to each other. The foliage sprays are green above and green marked with whitish stomatal bands below; they are strongly aromatic, with a scent reminiscent of pineapple when crushed. The individual leaves are 0.039 to 0.157 inch long and 0.039 to 0.079 inch broad on most foliage sprays, but up to 0.47 inch long on strong-growing lead shoots. The cones are slender, 0.39 to 0.71 inch long, and 0.16 to 0.20 inch broad, with 8 to 12 (rarely 14) thin, overlapping scales. They are green to yellow-green, ripening brown in fall about six months after pollination, and open at maturity to shed the seeds. The seeds are 0.16 to 0.20 inch long and 0.039 inch) broad, with a narrow papery wing down each side. The pollen cones are 0.12 to 0.16 inch long, red or purple at first, and shed yellow pollen in spring.

    cedar berry, cedar leaf - Juniperus monosperma


    CEDAR BERRY (JUNIPER MONOSPERMUS)

    Cedar Berry (Juniperus monosperma) has a long tradition in Native American medicine. This needle bearing tree is native to the Southwestern United States, and covers nearly 3/4 of the state of New Mexico. Juniperus monospermus is a variety of juniper that grows in higher, dryer elevations in the southwest. It has traditionally been used in the same ways as the common juniper. Juniper monospema is a very hardy species, the cedar berry tree can grow in poor soil when and where other trees cannot. The one-seed juniper can grow to heights of 25 feet, and has flat, scale-like leaves and bluish-green berries. There are in fact two different types of cedar berry trees, one male and one female. Each has flowers, but only the female produces a small waxy pod with a single seed; this is what we consider the "berry." While the trees grow slowly, the berries reach maturity in one year. Many parts of the tree are used in traditional medicine, including a paste made of crushed berries.

    Among the conditions that cedar berry has been used to treat are cough, fever, rheumatism, diabetes, tuberculosis, scurvy, toothache and to promote menstruation. Besides the medicinal uses listed above, juniper boughs and leaves were often burned to help purify the air, and the leaves and twigs can be used to make a green or brown dye. While there has been little formal research done to substantiate the medical claims, a number of botanical databases note that the various chemical constituents of the leaves and cedar berries do have emetic, diuretic, antibiotic, germicidal and antiseptic properties. Dr. James Duke notes that the plant has chemicals that suggest it may help the body fight arthritis, asthma, cough, congestion, hepatitis and muscle stiffness.

    VIRGINIA CEDARWOOD (JUNIPERUS VIRGINIANA)

    Virginia Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) has a fine-grained, soft brittle pinkish- to brownish-red heartwood is fragrant, very light and very durable, even in contact with soil. Native American tribes used juniper wood poles to mark out agreed tribal hunting territories. Because of its rot resistance, the wood is used for fence posts. The aromatic wood is avoided by moths, so it is in demand as lining for clothes chests and closets, often referred to as cedar closets and cedar chests. If correctly prepared, it makes excellent English longbows, flatbows, and Native American sinew-backed bows. The wood is marketed as eastern red cedar or aromatic cedar. The best portions of the heartwood are one of the few woods good for making pencils, but the supply had diminished sufficiently by the 1940s that it was largely replaced by incense-cedar.

    The essential oil is distilled from the wood, twigs and leaves. The cones are used to flavor gin and as a kidney medicine. Native American tribes used juniper wood poles to mark out agreed tribal hunting territories. French traders named Baton Rouge, Louisiana (meaning "red stick") from the reddish color of these poles.

    During the Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s, the Prairie States Forest Project encouraged farmers to plant shelterbelts (wind breaks) made of eastern juniper throughout the Great Plains. They grow well under adverse conditions. Both drought tolerant and cold tolerant, they grow well in rocky, sandy, and clay substrate. Competition between trees is minimal, so they can be planted in tightly spaced rows, and the trees still grow to full height, creating a solid windbreak in a short time. A number of cultivars have been selected for garden planting, including 'Canaertii' (narrow conical; female) 'Corcorcor' (with a dense, erect crown; female), 'Goldspire' (narrow conical with yellow foliage), and 'Kobold' (dwarf). Some cultivars previously listed under this species, notably 'Skyrocket', are actually cultivars of J. scopulorum. In the Missouri and Arkansas Ozarks, eastern juniper is commonly used as a Christmas tree.

    In North America, Virginia Cedarwood has been used for respiratory infections. This oil has also been used as an insect repellant. It has antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, circulatory stimulant, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, insecticide, and sedative properties. It is used to treat acne, arthritis, bronchitis, coughs, cystitis, dandruff, eczema, insect repellant, nervous tension, oily skin, psoriasis, repiratory congestion, and rheumatism, sinusitis, and stress. Virginia Cedarwood may be diffused into the air as an insect repellant. This essential oil is used as a fixative in perfumery. It is also used in the isolation of the sesquiterpene cedrene. The essential oil may cause skin irritation in some sensitive individuals. Dilute properly if using on the skin and do a skin patch test before using over larger areas to make sure you do not have semsitivities or allergies to Virginia Cedarwood.

  • CEDAR BERRY (JUNIPER MONSPERMUS)

    Juniperus monospermus is a variety of juniper that grows in higher, dryer elevations in the southwest. It has traditionally been used in the same ways as the common juniper. Juniperus monosperma has great cultural significance to many people. It is worn or held in many traditional ceremonies by medicine men of various tribes. Besides a number of medicinal uses, juniper boughs and leaves leaves are burned to purify the air of the area where any ceremony or blessing will take place. Participants are also asked to purify themselves with smoke of the plant. The leaves and twigs can be used to make a green or brown dye.

    Native Americans used the fruit as a diuretic and the cones were used as a laxative, emetic in diarrhea. Also bark was rubbed on spider bites, the gum used for tooth cavities and the leaves were used for pains after childbirth. (Hocking, 1997) This plant has chemicals that suggest it will help the body fight against arthritis, asthma, congestion, cough, hepatitis, and stiffness. (Dr. Duke’s Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Databases.)

    The leaves are cleaned, broken to smaller fragment, and stored for future uses. The leaves are cleaned and burned, and the ashes are kept in powdered form in a container for uses in cooking. The leaves or berries are ground and made into paste. A smudege stick can be made by combining Juniper and Sae limbs, broken to appropriate size, and gathered into a compact bundle. The stems were wrapped together with string, wrapping upward on the bundle a preferred seven times. The bundle is then cross wrapped seven times and the bottom was wrapped again and tied off.

    This juniper was used in basket and textile making. It also served as firewood and building material to many residents to its area. The ashes of this plant are mixed with corn in preparation of many Native foods like cornmeal, cornbread, mush, pancakes, dumplings, tamales and a Navajo tea. The juniper ash contained significant amounts of calcium, iron, and magnesium.

    CEDAR LEAF (THUJA PLICATA / THUJA OCCIDENTALIS)

    White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) is a tree with important uses in traditional Ojibwe culture. Honoured with the name Nookomis Giizhik (Grandmother Cedar), the tree is the subject of sacred legends and is considered a gift to humanity for its myriad uses, among them crafts, construction and medicine. It is one of the four plants of the Ojibwe medicine wheel, associated with the south. The foliage of Thuja occidentalis is rich in Vitamin C and is believed to be the annedda which cured the scurvy of Jacques Cartier and his party in the winter of 1535 to 1536. Due to the presence of the neurotoxic compound thujone, internal use can be harmful if used for prolonged periods or while pregnant.

    Northern white cedar is commercially used for rustic fencing and posts, lumber, poles, shingles and in the construction of log cabins, White cedar is the preferred wood for the structural elements, such as ribs and planking, of birchbark canoes and the planking of wooden canoes.

    The essential oil within the plant has been used for cleansers, disinfectants, hair preparations, insecticides, liniment, room sprays, and soft soaps. There are some reports that the Ojibwa made a soup from the inner bark of the soft twigs. Others have used the twigs to make teas to relieve constipation and headache. Grown as an ornamental specimen, Powsin Botanical Garden, Warsaw, Poland In the 19th century, Thuja was in common use as an externally applied tincture or ointment for the treatment of warts, ringworm and thrush. An injection of the tincture into venereal warts is said to cause them to disappear.

    Giant Redcedar Thuja plicata is valued for its lumber. The soft red-brown timber has a tight, straight grain and few knots, It has a distinct appearance, aroma, and high natural resistance to decay, being extensively used for outdoor contruction in the form of posts, decking, shingles, and siding. It is commonly used for the framing and longwood in lightweight sail boats and kayaks. In larger boats it is often used in sandwich construction between two layers of epoxy resin and/or fiberglass or similar products. It is light weight when dried and quite strong, but can be brittle. It glues well with epoxy resin or resorcinol adhesive. It is also used to line closets and chests, for its pungent aromatic oils are belieived to discourage moth and carpet beetle larvae, which can damage cloth by eating wool and similar fibers. A well-sealed redcedar chest will retain its pungent odor for many decades, sometimes for over a century. The light weight and strength along with dark warm sound make it a popular choice for guitar soundboards. Thujaplicin, a chemical substance, is found in mature trees and serves as a natural fungicide, thereby preventing the wood from rotting. This effect lasts around a century even after the tree is felled. However, thujaplicin is only found in older trees. Saplings that do not produce the chemical often rot at an early stage, causing some trees to grow with a somewhat hollow, rotten trunk. It is also widely used throughout Europe and America for making beehive frames.

    Western redcedar has an extensive history of use by the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, from Oregon to southeast Alaska. Some northwest coast tribes refer to themselves as "people of the redcedar" because of their extensive dependence on the tree for basic materials. The wood has been used for constructing housing and totem poles, and crafted into many objects, including masks, utensils, boxes, boards, instruments, canoes, vessels, houses, and ceremonial objects. Roots and bark were used for baskets, bowls, ropes, clothing, blankets, and rings.

    For Medicinal Use: Collection of leaf buds, leaves, inner bark from young trees in the summer and fall has the highest oil content. It has antifungal, antibacterial (stimulates phagocytosis, helps athletes foot, ringworm, jock itch, nail fungus, chronic vaginitis, and stimulates smooth muscle - helping with respiratory , urinary tract, and reproductive system problems. It can be used as a tea, tincture, cold infusion, steam inhalation and essential oil.

    Internal uses include boiling limbs to make a tuberculosis treatment, chewing leaf buds for sore lungs, boiling leaves to make a cough remedy, making a decoction of leaves to treat colds, chewing leaf buds to relieve toothache pain, making an infusion to treat stomach pain and diarrhea, chewing the inner bark of a small tree to bring about delayed menstruation, making a bark infusion to treat kidney complaints, making an infusion of the seeds to treat fever and using a weak infusion internally to treat rheumatism and arthritis.

    External uses include making a decoction of leaves to treat rheumatism, washing with an infusion of twigs to treat venereal disease, including the human papilloma virus and other sexually transmitted diseases. Making a poultice of boughs or oil to treat rheumatism and bronchitis. Making a poultice or oil from inner bark to treat skin diseases, including topical fungal infections and warts. Using shredded bark to cauterize and bind wounds. Extracts of red cedar have been shown to have antibacterial properties against common bacteria. Compounds with antifungal properties have also been isolated.

    Most preparations of red cedar call for boiling the medicinal parts to make a decoction or for making a tea or infusion. Little information exists on dosages. An essential oil can be prepared from red cedar. This oil is meant to be used topically. It is toxic if taken internally, and has the ability to produce convulsions or even death if taken in even small quantities. A 1999 study done in Switzerland noted an increase in poisoning deaths from plant products, including Thuja, due possibly to an increase in people practicing herbal healing and aromatherapy.

  • CEDAR SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION

  • Cedar Leaf Precautions: When used as a dietary agent, Cedar Leaf should not be used for extended periods of time, and only to be administered by someone qualified in the appropriate use of this substance. The oil of all species of Thuja can cause convulsions and can be poisonous if taken internally. Decoctions of the bark of red cedar can also cause miscarriage. Therefore, red cedar should not be used while pregnant or during breastfeeding. Many people develop asthma and bronchial spasms from exposure to red cedar or red cedar dust. This is due to an allergic reaction to placatic acid present in the wood. Red cedar induced asthma is a serious occupational hazard to loggers in western North America. There are no reported hazards when using it as ceremony, in incense of other household crafted items. There are no studies and little observational evidence to indicate whether red cedar interacts with other herbs or with Western pharmaceuticals.

  • Cedar Berry Precautions: Cedar Berry can be toxic when taken in large amounts. It should not be used by people with kidney or urinary tract problems, or by pregnant or nursing mothers, as it causes contractions.

  • Cedarwood Precautions: There are no known cautions or interactions with Cedarwood when used in the recommended doses; however, safety in young children, pregnant and nursing women, or those suffering with liver or kidney disease is not known.

    Thuja occidentalis is an alterative, anthelmintic, antiinflammatory, antiseptic, aromatic, astringent, diaphoretic, diuretic, emmenagogue, homeopathy, expectorant, and rubefacient. A tea made from the leaves is traditionally used in the treatment of fevers, headaches, colds, coughs, absence of menses, bronchitis, and other respiratory problems. Externally, the leaves are used in steam baths for rheumatism, arthritis, colds, and as a wash for swollen feet, burns, vaginal infections, warts, rheumatism, achy muscles, psoriasis, eczema, venereal warts and sores, bruises, swellings, rheumatic pain, and fungal infections. A tincture of the leaves has been used in the treatment of warts, piles, bed sores, painful joints or muscles, and fungal infections. The leaves are used as a perfume, incense, and an insect repellent. In Chinese medicine, Cedar leaf has been used to stimulate blood circulation. Native American tribes used it to treat fevers, coughs, headaches, swollen hands and rheumatic problems. Cedar is native to North America, and was once used by the Native Americans to create canoes, earning it the title "Canoewood". It was later affectionately nicknamed 'Arbor Vitae', a French term for Tree of Life, after supposedly curing one of Jacques Cartier's men of Scurvy during a 16th century expedition. As a result, Thuja occidentalis was imported to Europe for its medicinal properties, but now is primarily viewed as an ornamental tree. Today, it is mainly used in homeopathy for acute and chronic infections of the upper respiratory tract. Also known as: Thuja plicata, Thuja occidentalis, Thuja, American Arbor Vitae, Tree Of Life, Bati Mazizi, Eastern Arborvitae, False White Cedar, Hackmatack, Mazi Aghaji Mazu, Northern White Cedar, Po, Umur Aghaji, Western Arbor Vitae, Yellow Cedar, Swamp Cedar, American Arborvitae, Arborvitae, White Cedar, and Canoewood.
    Mountain Rose Herbs: Cedar Berry, Whole (Juniperus sp.), Wild Harvested, Bulk Organic Herbs & Spices
    Juniperus monospermus is a variety of juniper that grows in higher, dryer elevations in the southwest. It has traditionally been used in the same ways as the common juniper. Besides the medicinal uses listed above, juniper boughs and leaves were often burned to help purify the air, and the leaves and twigs can be used to make a green or brown dye. While there has been little formal research done to substantiate the medical claims, a number of botanical databases note that the various chemical constituents of the leaves and cedar berries do have emetic, diuretic, antibiotic, germicidal and antiseptic properties. Dr. James Duke notes that the plant has chemicals that suggest it may help the body fight arthritis, asthma, cough, congestion, hepatitis and muscle stiffness. Juniperus monosperma, also known as one-seed juniper, has a long tradition in Native American medicine. This needle bearing tree is native to the Southwestern United States, and covers nearly 3/4 of the state of New Mexico. A very hardy species, the cedar berry tree can grow in poor soil when and where other trees cannot. The one-seed juniper can grow to heights of 25 feet, and has flat, scale-like leaves and bluish-green berries. There are in fact two different types of cedar berry trees, one male and one female. Each has flowers, but only the female produces a small waxy pod with a single seed; this is what we consider the "berry". While the trees grow slowly, the berries reach maturity in one year. Many parts of the tree are used in traditional medicine, including a paste made of crushed berries. Among the conditions that cedar berry has been used to treat are cough, fever, rheumatism, diabetes, tuberculosis, scurvy, toothache and to promote menstruation. Also known as: Juniperus monosperma, One-seed Juniper, Cherrystone Juniper, Redberry Juniper, New Mexico Cedar, West Texas Juniper, and Sabina.
