Long considered a sacred plant, Cedarwood has held a special place among the religions and medicines of many different cultures. The ancient Egyptians used it as part of the embalming process. In temple building, it was used by the Asians as well as by Solomon in the temple at Jerusalem. The Tibetans not only used it as medicine, but because of its intensely pleasing fragrance also used it as sacred incense, as did most of the ancient world.
