Cedar can grow up to 19 feet in diameter and up to 200 feet tall, which is almost as long as a football field!  There are majestic elder cedar trees that are believed to be over 1000 years old. 

Does Cedar Have Healing Properties? 

The Healing Powers of Cedar are well documented throughout history. 

Cedar Leaf Medicine. Because it grows in cool, wet forests where many molds and fungi also thrive, Cedar creates its own powerful antimicrobials in its oils. These oils are powerful medicine to repel insects, molds, fungi, bacteria and viruses. It is also believed to promote immune function and to do a host of things to keep our tissues healthy. 

Cedar leaves make wonderful incense and can be used with great success in smudging for purification.

Note from Morning Moon founder Kate on Cedar Trees

I love the cedar in our collection because it is the most perfect cedar branch I have ever come across. When I first envisioned this collection, I searched forests up and down the BC Coast for over six years to find the perfect cedar branch. I was feeling around for the tree that spoke to my heart. I knew I would know when I found it. Friends must’ve thought I was crazy - when we were out on walks together, I was steadfast about touching every cedar tree that we came across until I found the one that spoke to me. 

One day I found the cedar tree that I knew would give me the collection. It spoke to me, I felt it in my heart. It asked to be made into jewelry for you, to share its gifts far and wide. And today, this is still the only tree that all the pieces in my Cedar jewellery collection comes from.

“Robin Wall Kimmerer has written an extraordinary book, showing how the factual, objective approach of science can be enriched by the ancient knowledge of the indigenous people. It is the way she captures beauty that I love the most—the images of giant cedars and wild strawberries, a forest in the rain and the meadow of fragrant sweetgrass will stay with you long after you read the last page.”
— Jane Goodall
