Because of their height and distinct pyramid-like shape that straddled two worlds, cypress trees are some of the most potent symbols in the natural world. Literally and figuratively pointing toward heaven above and earth below, they conjure up notions of immortality, hope and the afterlife. The Cypress Tree is part of the Sempervirens family which translates to “always green”, or “ever living.” As an ancient symbol of solace, Cypress is strong, and unbending giving us a place to stand rooted, so that we may feel and weather the passing of difficult emotions but not become overwhelmed by them. The scent of Cypress is calming and used for grief, anger and sadness. With its impressive height and historical and mythological links to immortality and mourning, the cypress stands as a doorway between the worlds and invites humans to ponder the deeper meanings of life on earth and what stretches beyond it.
