What is Cedar Fever?

Cedar fever is an upper-respiratory reaction to the pollen of certain juniper tree species, especially the "mountain cedar" tree (juniperus ashei). The pollens of other winter-pollinating juniper varieties, such as western red cedar and rocky mountain cedar, can also cause cedar fever. Of all the tree pollen varieties that cause upper respiratory problems, mountain cedar stands out for its ability to produce intense discomfort. Male cedar trees produce pollen (lots of it) in the winter when their pollen-packed cones unload golden clouds that drift like smoke from a grass fire.

Cedar Fever Symptoms

Cedar fever is typically indicated by runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, nasal irritation, sinus congestion, and sneezing; it can also produce fatigue, headache, body aches, facial discomfort, sore throat, some loss of smell, and a feeling of plugged ears. Despite the name, fever is not a common symptom of cedar fever.

Where Does Cedar Fever Occur?

The densest concentration of mountain cedar tress (juniperus Ashei) is on the Edwards Plateau region of Texas, but their range extends from the Rio Grande Valley to the Texas Panhandle and into Oklahoma. Patches of mountain cedar can also be found in Arkansas and Missouri. Cedar pollen isn't limited to these areas however, since dry winter winds can push the grains hundreds of miles in any direction. Other winter-pollinating members of the Juniper family, such as Western red cedar, Rocky Mountain cedar, and Eastern red cedar can be found coast-to-coast in the US and into Canada.

Cedar Fever Season

Junipers and other evergreens release pollen in winter, usually from December to March, with January and February typically seeing peak pollen counts. The worst times for cedar pollen are in the morning, especially on warm and windy days following a period of cold weather. Juniper pollen can travel great distances, and grains originating in Texas have been found as far north as Ontario, Canada.

Can You Prevent Cedar Fever?

If you're sensitive to cedar pollen and live in an area where cedar trees grow, there's little you can do to stop the pollen itself. You can avoid going outdoors. But if you do go out, wear a coat you can leave outside to prevent bringing pollen grains into your home. A towel (also kept outdoors during the cedar season) is also useful for removing pollen from your hair. Use a separate towel to wipe down your dog's coat. Get a good HEPA filter for your central air system. Shower often. And pray for cold, rainy days.

Easy Breather will help, too. Especially if you start taking it a few weeks before the cedar pollen starts flying. Pro users of our formulas take Easy Breather capsules a couple of times a day and supplement with the drops as needed.


Cedar fever begins with the pollen-packed buds of the mountain cedar (ashe juniper) tree, which release prodigious amounts of pollen grains during cedar fever season. Easy Breather is a natural cedar fever remedy available in liquid herb tinctures and herbal capsules.
