Cedarwood, Atlas absolute / Soft, Sweet, Balsamic, Precious Woods / $40 oz Cedrus atlantica
The ancients, as we have seen, valued the Mount Atlas cedar for its sweet-scented wood. Its cones, which are full of resinous matter, were laid amongst woollen garments for the purpose of imparting to them its perfume and driving away the moth. Other kinds of wood were rubbed with oil of cedar, and so rendered proof against woodworm (Plin. 16, 76), and, for a similar reason, books were anointed with the same oil, in order to preserve them from the attacks of destructive insects—
