Of the four cedar species worldwide (Cedrus atlantica, Atlas cedar; Cedrus brevifolia, Cyprus cedar; Cedrus deodora, Himalayan cedar and Cedrus libani, Lebanon cedar), only the Atlas cedar and the Himalayan cedar are used for essential oil production. Only their essential oils have the mode of action described in the literature.
The essential oil of the famous Lebanon cedar has not been commercially available for a century because it is a protected tree population of only about 400 trees.
Most of the wood is also used by other plants, such as the Chinese juniper (Juniperus chinensis) Virginia-Juniperus virginiana or Texas cedar-Juniperus mexicana, and the entire Thuja species, such as. B. Thuja orientalis (the oriental tree of life) or Thuja occidentalis (western tree of life), incorrectly referred to as cedar. These plants have absolutely nothing to do with the cedars and belong to a completely different family of plants, namely the cypress plants. the oil has different ingredients and effects on body, mind and soul than the real cedar oil. If the dosage and application are incorrect, allergic reactions are possible.
