Back in the early 80’s Glen Orr was taking a leisurely lunch break in a lumber yard when he saw a deer rolling in a pile of cedar chips. Curious, he asked his boss if he knew why the deer was doing this. He learned that deer instinctively know that cedar keeps off tics and fleas off and are known to roll on fallen cedar trees for this reason.
Glen set about extracting cedar oil from the Northwestern Red Cedar tree by putting shavings into a steam distiller made from an old hot water heater. He worked closely with a chemist from a lab in Seattle to blend the extracted oil with water to make it safe to use on humans and pets, while keeping it strong enough to be an effective natural bug repellent. The chemist also blended the cedar oil in a natural baby shampoo formula and it became as popular as the cedar oil. In 1985 CEDAR-AL,Scandinavian for cedar oil, was born. The same lumber yard and laboratory still work together to provide CEDAR-AL customers with the same cedar oil they have come to love.
Eddie Bauer stocked CEDAR-AL cedar oil and pet shampoo on every shelf of every one of their stores for over a decade, until they discontinued most of their outdoor items to become a clothier instead. Glen Orr walked off into the woods never to be heard from again. His partner, Roberto Martinez was left holding the remnants of Glen’s dream.
CEDAR-AL remained dormant until 2005 when Roberto met, fell in love, and married Elise Crawford. With her children nearly grown, she gladly hung up her nurse’s cap and worked alongside Roberto to nurture CEDAR-AL back to life. Since then, a new label was created for CEDAR-AL, two new products have come on board, cedar oil carpet shampoo and an enzyme cleaner, Triple Action Plus, and an online store was created. When a photo of the original label was posted on the website, former Eddie Bauer customers flocked to the website, so relieved that CEDAR-AL wasn’t lost to them forever.
"We use the cedar shampoo for our dog and our son's dog. We use the cedar spray for the bedding, small amount under his bedding. Plus I spray in our musty cellar. I also spray around the door ways and windows to help keep bugs away. I spray in my cedar closets to freshen them up also. I put on cotton balls under furniture and in cupboards to freshen those places. It is sprayed on cotton balls and I make little scarves for my pets, with that oil and lavender that I grow to repel fleas when he is playing outside. I use it actually everywhere. Also in my blanket chest to store seasonal clothes and blankets. Soooo much better then moth balls. Spray my screens with it. I love the stuff, as you can see. It is simply a wonderful fresh smell. Some goes in my wash water every once in a while to wash floors also, just a tiny amount. There are many uses for it. I dilute it in a spray bottle with water to spray around my house and closets. So as not to be too strong or irritating to the nose or skin if comes in contact, plus it helps to go further for me as I do use it a lot!!! Thank you for your wonderful products. I always tell people about you, keep up great smelling products!"
