Young Living cypress essential oil (Cupressus sempervirens) has a fresh, herbaceous aroma that can promote a sense of security and grounding. The Phoenicians and Cretans used cypress for building ships and bows, while the Egyptians made sarcophagi from the wood. The Greeks used cypress to carve statues of their gods. The Greek work “sempervirens,” from which the botanical name is derived, means “live forever.” The tree shares its name with the island of Cypress, where it is used for worship. Cypress wood is noted for its durability as it was used most famously for the original doors of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican that legends say lasted over 1,000 years.
