Cypress essential oil is distilled from the foliage and twigs of a tall evergreen tree with slender branches and a statuesque conical shape. Cypress has been used in ritual practices since antiquity. The cypress tree was associated with many gods throughout various ancient cultures — in Egypt, it was associated with the God of the Dead, Osiris. The Greeks also associated the tree with Hades, God of the Underworld. The Latin name of cypress means “ever-living”, named after the tree's mythical connection to the afterlife. The essential oil can be used to cleanse and purify a space that holds a negative energy.
