Origin and background

Cypress essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the twigs and needles of the evergreen conifer, cypress, in the Mediterranean countries. By the way, it is Van Gogh's paintings that have made this plant famous.

According to Greek mythology, cypress is considered a mourning tree and is therefore often grown in cemeteries. Cypress is also associated with the God of the Underworld, Hades. The Phoenicians and Cretans used cypress wood to build ships and houses. The Egyptians made sarcophagi out of it. The Greeks again carved the images of their gods. According to one legend, the cross of Jesus Christ was also made of this wood - hence another reason why the cypress is associated with death. However, it is worth remembering that the botanical name of cypress comes from a Latin word sempervirens, which in translation means eternally alive, or, as it is a conifer tree, evergreen.

Recommended uses


  • It is recommended to use essential oils and their blend in a diluted form. Especially for sensitive and gentle skin. This means adding a small amount of water or carrier oil before applying it to the skin. The blend can be placed, for example, in a roll-on bottle that is convenient to carry along and can be used at any convenient time.
  • Can also be added to a neutral unscented cream, lotion, or liquid soap to achieve radiant and healthy skin.
  • Can be used in an aroma diffuser both at home or in the office to create a pleasant and cozy atmosphere that relaxes the senses and creates a pleasant aroma around you.
  • It can also be added to an oil burner. Don't forget to add water to the oil burner and then drip in the essential oil! Pure essential oil is too strong and has a faint odor.
