Cedar

Used in : Song Of Songs Oil

“The fragrance of your garments is like that of Lebanon.” Song 4:11b

The fragrance of Lebanon is associated with its cedars. In ancient times, clothing was anointed with cedar oil to protect it from humidity.

Cedar is an integral part of two biblical purification rituals - one for lepers and another for those who were impure from coming in contact with the dead - Leviticus 14:1-32; Numbers 19. The garments of the bride of Messiah are interpreted as her works of righteousness (Rev.19:8). When associated with the fragrance of ceder and the mentioned passages (which speaks of the use of cedar in the purification rituals), it shows that her works are cleansed and free of the “dead-works” of the flesh and uncontaminated by “spiritual leprosy”.

Since cedar wood was known for its strength and incorruptibility, royal dwellings were constructed with cedars imported from Lebanon. David’s home, Solomon’s palace and both Solomon's Temple and Herod's Temple, were all examples thereof.

In the Song of Songs, cedar is also connected with intimacy - thus incorruptible intimacy.
King Solomon made for himself the carriage; he made it of wood from Lebanon. Song 3:9
In the secret place of repose (carriage/bed) and out of our intimate union with the King of kings, we find increased spiritual strength.

"And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall" 1 Kings 4:33

True cedars such as the atlas cedar of Morocco and the famous cedar of Lebanon are not members of the cupressaceae (cypress) family but the pinaceae (pine) family which also contains the pines, spruces and firs.

The Atlas cedar grows in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and Algeria. The aroma of Atlas cedar is woody, oily and slightly camphor-like. The tree is believed to be closely related to the famous, ancient, perhaps thousand-year-old biblical Lebanon cedars now protected from further destruction by law. Lebanon cedar has a long history of use in medicine, cosmetics and perfumery. It blends well with woody, woody-floral and labdanum (Rose of Sharon) types of fragrances.

Cedar was noted, and is still noted today, for its incorruptibility. Most houses decks all over the world use Cedar for this very reason.
