Eastern White Cedar is a sacred tree that has many magical qualities. It is not actually a cedar, but a cyprus tree. It is effective as a smudge for protection and clearing, and has symbolic connection to the element of fire and the planet Jupiter, so makes a useful offering in rituals involving these aspects. Like the Yew, this tree symbolises eternal life and this aspect makes it an important addition to workings of banishing, success, and magical power.
This particular symbolism was used by ancient Druids, Norse people and in ancient Greece, where it was associated with Persephone. It also has a great woody aroma that leaves your space feeling closer to nature. The ash of the burned shavings can be used to consecrate and purify your tools as well.
Cedar provides grounding and joy when involved with personal transformation whether internal (new values, attitudes, beliefs) or external (new job, house, birth, death) and it allows you to ‘be’ in the present moment.
Cedar is a medicine of protection. Cedar trees are very old, wise and powerful spirits. Cedar is often used to cleanse a home or apartment when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influences. It works both as a purifier and as a way to attract good energy in your direction. Remove negative energy in your home. This is a great alternative to white sage.
