Paula says - "This cedar box is made in the USA from 3/8" thick aromatic cedar wood using box joints and brass hardware.
"Cedar is a natural repellent to moths and other insects so the interior is left untreated to allow the cedar aroma to be released.
"The exterior has a urethane finish.
"The grain of cedar is beautiful and each of these boxes has a distinctive pattern."
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.
