Cypress has magical properties in the Emelanese Universe. It is used in protective spells. When burned as an incense cypress is for death.
Frostpine uses a mixture of rosemary, rose geranium and cypress oils steeped in protective spells to reinforce the giant chain protecting Summersea's harbor when pirates attack in 1035.
Briar uses the same mixture to create protective circles, able to withstand five mages trying to break it at once.
