Cypress Oil comes from several species of coniferous evergreens in the Cupressaceae botanical family, whose members are naturally distributed throughout warmer temperate and subtropical regions of Asia, Europe, and North America. Known for their dark foliage, round cones, and small yellow flowers, Cypress trees typically grow to be around 25-30 meters (roughly 80-100 feet) tall, notably growing in a pyramidal shape, particularly when they are young.

Cypress trees are speculated to have originated in ancient Persia, Syria, or Cyprus and to have been brought to the Mediterranean region by Etruscan tribes. Among the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean, Cypress acquired connotations with the spiritual, becoming symbolic of death and mourning. As these trees stand tall and point heavenward with their characteristic shape, they also came to symbolize immortality and hope; this can be seen in the Greek word ‘Sempervirens’, which means ‘lives forever’ and which forms part of the botanical name of a prominent Cypress species used in oil production. The symbolic value of this tree’s oil was recognized in the ancient world as well; the Etruscans believed it could ward off the smell of death just as they believed the tree could ward off demons and often planted it around burial sites. A sturdy material, Ancient Egyptians used Cypress wood to carve out coffins and adorn sarcophagi, while the Ancient Greeks used it to carve statues of the gods. All over the ancient world, carrying a Cypress branch was a wide used sign of respect for the dead.

 Fun Facts About Cypress:

  • The Greek word, ‘Sempervirens’, from which the Cypress tree’s botanical name originates, means ‘lives forever’.
  • The Chinese associated the Cypress tree with contemplation, as its roots take the form of a seated man as they grow.
  • It has been documented that Hippocrates diluted Cypress Oil in his bath to soothe his circulatory problems, thanks to its benefits linked to this.

Using essential oils on pets: 

The ability to tolerate essential oils is dependent on many factors, including plant species, product, dose, and route of application. Essential oil use cases show the most significant risk of toxicity is from direct skin application on your pet’s skin – these same cases also share that a large volume was applied directly and neat (pure without a carrier) to the pet’s skin. Knowing that there is a risk in using these oils to your pet’s fur or skin, we strongly recommend consultation with your veterinarian or animal care specialist prior to applying or exposure to any of our products.

If you’ve chosen to use essential oils around your pet, we first recommend taking note of your pets behavior, contacting your vet with any concerns, and the below list of Rūt products that we feel are the most pet-friendly:

Single note essential oils:

  • Chamomile
  • Frankincense
  • Clary Sage
  • Geranium
  • Rosemary

Should you choose to use your ultrasonic diffuser in the presence of your pet, we recommend:

  • Using only small amounts of essential oils. 1-5 drops are our recommendation
  • Ensure the space is well ventilated with a window open slightly for fresh air
  • Always keep a door open so that the animal can enter and exit the room easily
  • Take note of how your pet responds at all times and if you notice your pet resisting an aroma, discontinue use and move them to a well-ventilated space
  • Be particularly mindful of pets that are in cages or enclosed spaces (including birds and small rodents) as they cannot leave the room if they become uncomfortable
