This essential oil owes its title to the Greek island of the same name; where the tree was once worshipped. The Greeks used it to carve their holy statues and it was said to be the wood of Jesus’ cross. There are several species of Cypress cultivated for essential oils; Tinderbox uses the original Mediterranean cypress.
