Cedar is a reigning king, a lion and it likes dominating the area where it grows. Almighty, it grows up as high as it is self-confident. It knows that it has no other equal but itself. Have a look at it, stretching out its branches inconsiderately. Its side branches, besides, are almost like trunks! They go up, then down and up again, not letting their weight get them down.
Recognising Himalayan cedar among other types of Cedar, no problem! From far away already, one can see its arrow-shaped top leaning sideways, like Gandalf's hat. Its trunk then divides into many trunks (why would it bother not to?) and finally, its rosette leaves are much longer than other cedars' and softer as well. Himalayan cedar differs from Atlas cedar firstly in that it is bottle green. Pinecones are big and plump, almost round. They smell good because they're full of resin but it is hard to find one intact. Indeed, they to flake off before falling down, setting seeds free.
It can live over 2'000 years in the Himalayas up to 3'000 meters (9'842.5 ft.) above sea level and can be 60 meter (196.85 ft.) high. Much higher than in Europe. Imagine wood that has to stay solid whatsoever, survive rotting, fungus, insects, wind and soil movements in the mountains. How can it live through time (as long as our Christian era!) with no problem? Simply because it is full of powerful essential oils. Full is the right word: 30 kilograms (66.1 lbs.) of wood contain one kilo (2.2 lbs.) of essential oil.
The essential oil is extracted from the wood and was already used by the Egyptians to preserve mummies and build their sarcophagus. Time has no impact on cedar! Its name comes from the Arabic word Kedron, which means strength. Temples in Babylon and Solomon's royal palace were made of cedar wood. That is why it was practically eradicated in this region (Lebanon cedar).
Hence, it sounds funny to have use-by dates for essential oils, doesn't it? Mummies were preserved from decay thanks to them, and even intact bottles of essential oil were found in the Pyramids! But yet, rules have to be followed and chemicals have to be sold. But that is another story. Celts, for example, used to use cedar wood resin to embalm their most respected and noble enemies' heads. Druids used to hold ceremonies in cedar groves which symbolised trust in their astrological system.
