Cypress

A tree native to Southern Europe but also found across Europe and North America. It is known for its longevity hence the name “cupressus sempervirens”, literally “he who lives forever”. Cypress trees are used for wood, for extracting resin and essential oils. The Greeks highly appreciated its therapeutic properties and used it to stop bleeding.
