Guide - Green Cypress EO
The Story :
Cypress generally measures 15 to 20 metres and grows particularly on Mediterranean calcareous soils.
Its Latin name sempervirens always means green, referring to its longevity and its persistent greenery.
This conifer is revered by many civilizations. According to the accounts of Greek mythology, a young man called Kyparissos (Greek name for cypress), who was inconsolable for accidentally killing a deer venerated by the forest nymphs, wanted to die and transformed himself into cypress to do so.
The cypress then became a symbol of mourning, resurrection and immortality due to its exceptional longevity (some cypresses are said to be 2000 years old). It is also present in most cemeteries in the Mediterranean basin.
In China, it is said that the consumption of cypress seeds would prolong life.
The Plant :
