A tall evergreen tree with slender branches and a statuesque conical shape, the Cypress grows to a height of 25-45 meters (75-147 feet), bearing small flowers and round brownish-grey cones or nuts. Native to Southern Europe, this Italian varietal (Cupressus sempervirens) has spread to North Africa and North America and is now cultivated in France, Spain, and Morocco.

ABOUT THE OIL

This essential oil is steam-distilled from the dark green needles and twigs of Cypress trees grown in France.

Traditional Uses

First used in ancient Egypt for medicinal and ceremonial purposes, Cypress oil was also employed by the ancient Assyrians for its astringent properties.
