Cedar, Virginian is a coniferous, slow growing, evergreen tree, which grows up to 35 metres high with a narrow, dense pyramidal crown, a reddish heartwood and brown cones.


Native North Americans used it for respiratory infections, especially those involving an excess of catarrh. Decoctions of leaves, barks, twigs and fruit were used on a variety of ailments, such as menstrual delay, rheumatism, arthritis, skin rashes, venereal warts, gonorrhoea, pyellitis and kidney infections.

It is an excellent insect repellent and can be used with Citronella for this purpose. Not a cedar at all but a juniper. Got its name from its smell and was used to make pencils which gave the typical smell of a cedar.
