According to Vladimir Megre, “ringing cedars” are very old (over 550 years) trees of Siberian cedar that over their lifetime accumulate so much energy that they start emitting a vibrating “ringing” sound. It is believed that these trees or pieces of their wood may produce a beneficial influence on human health and consciousness.
The oil from cedar nuts is extracted for a long time in a year. Nut harvesting begins in late September and lasts till early March.

This is done so that the nut kernel itself would not contact with metal. Crushing is followed by the kernel sorting stage done exclusively by hand.
The process of producing Siberian cedar nut oil is carried out by two young men, who operate five wooden presses. After receiving kernels from the sorters, they put them in linen bags of 2 kg each, place them in the presses, and begin to squeeze slowly. Once the oil stops flowing, the first extraction process is completed.
Oil flows into glass bottles of 20 litres each, which are then transferred for bottling and packaging, as well as enriching with herbal supplements and extracts. Oil is not filtered or decanted; on the contrary, it is stirred with a Siberian cedar stirrer before bottling. All this is done in order to preserve its natural composition, density and flavour.
