In Ancient Times/Ancient Story: >. Ancient utilization of the Cedar tree can be found most notably in early Egyptian and Mesopotamian culture. The now extinct Sumerians, considered to be one of the earliest known civilizations, described the cedar as the “Holy Tree of Life”, with seven-thousand-year-old Sumerian tablets revealing that the tree was associated with excellence, power, and immortality.
Ancient Usage: Since biblical times, the revered cedar tree was frequently utilized as rot-resistant wood for boats and other structures, still used in ship construction to this day. Cedarwood essential oil, distilled from cedar bark, has been used since antiquity for its fragrant scent, as well as its spiritual, preservative, and other useful applications.
In ancient Egypt, it was used to preserve mummies and papyruses, while Egyptian royalty would use cedar oil to ward off sickness, as a component in fragrances and cosmetics, and to improve the appearance and texture of their skin and hair.
Ancient Beliefs: The cedar was cherished by the Sumerians as a gift from God, believed to be a storage of cosmic energy here on earth. It was a Sumerian symbol of immortality since some cedars live two thousand years or more. Similarly, the ancient Egyptians venerated the cedar tree, seeing it as a symbol of eternal return and a gift of the god Osiris.
