The Cypress Tree has already been written about in an earlier blog, however, many do not think about how magickal Cypress wood is when it comes to making poppets, potions, and other spell-work.
Cypress wood may be used to consecrate ritual tools in its smoke. It can also be powdered and used as an incense for those who work with the magick of the legendary King Stag of the forest. Of course, many already know that it may be carried in a pocket to help aid in longevity of the bearer. And, it is said to give a happy hereafter to a loved one whom has died if you throw a handful of Cypress in upon the coffin.
All parts of a Cypress tree may be used in magick. Cypress oil is a very sought-after oil for protection and longevity. However, we may not always have every oil that we wish for so here is a recipe for an oil that is rich in magickal properties for longevity, protection, and comfort. It may be used as candle dressing, annointing, and any spellwork that involves longevity, protection, and comfort for grief.

Longevity and Protection Oil
You will need:
Cypress wood, cut fine or powdered (small chunks are fine) about 1/8 tsp
Maple wood, cut fine or powered, about 1/8 tsp
Lavender, dried about 1/8 tsp
1/8 cup Olive Oil
3 drops Rosemary Oil (for protection)
3 drops Lavender Oil (for longevity, protection)
3 drops Lemon Oil (for longevity)
1 tiny Amethyst chip (for healing, protection)
1 tiny Citrine chip (for protection & charging of oil)
1 tiny rose quartz chip (for receptivity, harmony)
Firstly, enchant your Cypress, Maple and Lavender. Mix all ingredients into a bottle that will accept all items, cork or cap bottle, and shake 3 to 9 times, putting your intent into what you are doing. Use for all magickal workings to do with protection, healing, and longevity. May be used for anointing.
