About the Plant:

The Cypress tree dates back to the Pliocene era (5.3 to 1.8 million years ago) and can live to be around two thousand years old. Imagine seeing the world change so much in your lifetime as a tree! Certified Organic Cypress Essential Oil is distilled from twigs from the tall evergreen tree bearing the cones. It is understood that the cones contain the active principle.

Where it Grows:

Cypress is native to the eastern Mediterranean regions. It now grows wild in France, Italy, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Spain, Portugal, North Africa, England, and the Balkan countries. Amrita® Aromatherapy is very proud to have Organic Cypress from France.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

The Cypress tree has a long and interesting history. The Greeks dedicated the Cypress tree to Pluto (the god of the underworld). This is why so many graveyards are associated with Cypress trees.* Hippocrates used Cypress to treat hemorrhoids and it was used for bladder infections and internal bleeding by Dioscorides.*

Another folklore legend tells that the Cypress tree gained its name from the Greek Cyparissus. He asked the Greek God Apollo if he could be allowed to grieve and legend states that Apollo turned Cyparissus into a Cypress tree, a place where others could grieve.* Today, there are many Cypress trees found in European graveyards; it is also thought that the fragrance released by Cypress trees helps to comfort the bereaved.

Many ancient people used Cypress for its medicinal value. In traditional Chinese Medicine, the cypress is used for purifying and cleansing.* The ancient Greeks used Cypress leaves and cones to treat internal bleeding and wounds.* In the ancient Egyptian world, Cypress wood was used to make coffins, as it was believed that Cypress wood would not rot over time.*
