what else you should know

Cypress trees belong to one of the oldest plant families on Earth—the Cupressaceae, which is approxiately 17 million years old. The trees can live for many hundreds of years, which has given them the name sempervirens, meaning "ever-alive."

In the folklore of many countries, cypress trees are seen as a gateway to the "otherworld" or the afterlife, which is why they are often found in churchyards. In Tibet, twigs and branches of this evergreen tree are burned as sacred incense.

Cypress essential oil is produced from the leaves and twigs, and has a deep, earthy and smoky aroma, with sharper, fresh notes as it evaporates.

Cypress essential oil is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing, and is considered safe for all skin types.
