Cypress, cupressus sempervirens

Cypress is a tree that belongs in every image of a Mediterranean landscape. Appreciated for its wood and wind breaking ability when planted in rows, humans have propagated it even further than its natural expansion.

We distill Cypress occasionally, when someone prunes or chops down a tree, when it’s the right time. We collect only the final parts of the branches that have fresh, healthy leaves.

Ikarian cypress essential oil has a very earthy, green vegetation tone to it, representing the landscape it grows in.
