The oil of cypress is useful during the periods of transition, such as the career advancement, shifting home or for the great spiritual decisions, like changing religion. In these moments, also the floral remedy of Bach “Walnut” can as well be used with benefit.
The Cypress helps also in the periods of painful transition, like a mourning or the end of a love relation . The Latin word “sempervirens“, in means “that always lives”, because the leaves of the plant are always green, but it can be also understood as referring to the eternal life, as the antic roman and the Egyptians had dedicated this tree to their God of the dead and of the afterlife.
From thousand of years the cypress trees are planted in the cemeteries, perhaps to remind us of the eternal life. The essential oil extracted from the tree can be used for giving comfort and fortitude in the moment of the death, in the same way as Melissa.
