No clue as I'm not a medicine man but I do know that the scent of cedar is supposed to be cleansing. If nothing else, you won't have any moths lingering round, lol.

Like Sage and Sweet grass, cedar is used to purify the home, it also has many restorative medicinal use. When mixed with sage for a tea, it cleans the body of all infections, cedar baths are also very healing. When cedar mixed with tobacco is put in the fire it crackles, this is said to call the attention of the Spirits to the offering that is being made. Cedar is used in sweat lodge and fasting ceremonies for protection, cedar branches cover the floor of many sweat lodges and some people make a circle of cedar when they are fasting. It is a guardian spirit and chases away the bad spirits.

I don't think paneling is quite the
But from what I was reading, it might actually attract a guardian spirit.

That's refreshing to know.

Maybe that orb my cat and I saw awhile back was a guardian. I know it didn't give me an eerie feeling at all. I can usually "feel" evil.

When the weather is right, the aroma of cedar fills our house, even though the cedar has been on the walls for 20 years; it smells soooooo good!

I've read before that it helps to repel moths and certain bugs; I've wondered if this is true for fleas too? With two cats inside, we have never had a flea problem, even though sometimes my daughter allows her cat to go outside for a short period.

I found a rather interesting video from another paranormal group who made this Palmer house Vid, check it out!
They also got responding knocks and a ghost child.
