About Himalayan Cedar

Our products are made from 100% Himalayan Cedar wood, sourced locally. Himalayan Cedar grows in South Africa as an alien species, so no forests have been harmed in the making of this product.

All manufacturing has been done locally, therefore making this a truly South African Product.

The inner wood is aromatic and used to make incense. Inner wood is distilled into essential oil. As insects avoid this tree, the essential oil is used as insect repellent on the feet of horses, cattle and camels. It also has anti-fungal properties and has some potential for control of fungal deterioration of spices during storage. The outer bark and stem are astringent.

Due to its anti-fungal and insect repellent properties, rooms made of Cedar, (Cedrus deodara) wood are used to store meat and food grains like oats and wheat in India. People suffering from asthma or other respiratory problems are advised to sit under a Deodar tree early in the morning.

Cedar oil is also used for its aromatic properties, and has a characteristic woody odour.
