Cypress 100% Pure Essential Oil
Native to the Mediterranean, cypress is an evergreen tree with branching twig-like foliage. These verdant cypress leaves are the source of cypress oil scent, which is pine-like and crisp, with light, lingering notes of spice and even a touch of citrus. Commonly found along scenic Greek and Italian landscapes, this long-lived conifer, which can grow to be more than 100 feet tall, evokes the calm and grace of sweeping natural vistas.

History of Cypress
The cypress tree may well contain the wisdom of the ancients in its essence, since some have lived to be thousands of years old! Often present in the same inspiring locales that Greeks and Romans walked long, long ago, cypress exudes an unmistakable clarity and calmness in its coniferous fragrance, while also gently rejuvenating the body, mind and spirit. This sense of soothing fluidity can even be found in Vincent van Gogh's numerous paintings of cypresses, which capture the presence of the tree's wondrous and relaxing qualities.
