-Cypress Essential Oil-
Cypress has been used in several applications since ancient times. Due to the wood's resilience and durability cypress was used to make sarcophagi for Egyptian mummies and the Greeks used it to make statues of their gods. This led to the belief that cypress held powerful protective forces and symbolized life after death. For the ancient Greeks and Romans this symbolic longevity was carried on through the use of the word ‘sempervirens’ used in its botanical name, which means ‘ever-living’
