Paula says - "Our new cedar boxes are hand made by a small woodshop in Vermont from 5/8" thick aromatic red cedar wood using extra strong keyed miter joints and quality brass hardware.
"Cedar is a natural repellent to moths and other insects so the wood is left untreated to allow the cedar aroma to be released.
"These boxes are natural wood with no lacquer or oil applied.
"The grain pattern of cedar is beautiful and varied. Each box will be slightly different from the one pictured but will give you many years (or generations) of service!"
Cedar Medicine (Hante Pejuta - Lakota) is an important part of Lakota belief and
ritual. Cedar is used for purifying, cleansing, and smudging. It is part of an
herbal blend smoked in ceremonial pipes, particularly to please Wakinyan (Winged-One
or Thunderbird). To protect one from lightning (said to be sent by Wakinyan) cedar
is burned, not to repel Wakinyan but out of respect.
