Although called a cedar, the Virginian cedar belongs to the juniper family (Cupressaceae). Also known as Red Cedar or Southern Red Cedar, this tree is native to North America.
Folk traditions note that native Americans used virginian cedarwood for respiratory infections, especially those involving excess mucous buildup in the nose or throat. It also has insect and vermin repelling qualities (mosquitoes, rats and moths) and was once used with citronella as a commercial insecticide. 
An in vitro study has shown Viriginian cedar can work synergistically with lavender for bacterial respiratory infections and thrush.
