Description

Cypress essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tree to produce a colourless to yellowy essential oil. The region where Cypress essential oil is produced is in the Mediterranean. Its main chemical components contain d-pinene, d-camphene, d-sylvestrene, terpenic alcohol and camphor of Cypress.

Cypress essential oil has some wonderful astringent properties, making it helpful in treating edema, excessive perspiration, and even over-heavy menstruation. This oil has been used in the treatment of cellulite by helping to improve circulation and reduce the amount of fluid that is retained in the body’s tissue, as well as with varicose veins and hemorrhoids. The deodorant and astringent properties of Cypress essential oil make it the ideal candidate for use in a footbath when dealing with excessive perspiration of the feet (helps with smelly feet, too!).

Cypress essential oil is also antispasmodic, especially on the bronchi, so it is a great oil to use when treating asthma, coughs or whooping cough through direct inhalation (place a drop on a tissue or in a diffuser). Asthmatic sufferers will benefit from Cypress essential oil being used in the bedroom.

The aroma has a stimulating and elevating effect on the mind and psyche, which helps to relieve and quell anger. This essential oil may help to calm angry, stressed out individuals.

Cypress essential oil blends well with Bergamot essential oil, Clary Sage essential oil, Juniper essential oil, Lavender essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Orange essential oil, Rosemary essential oil and Sandalwood essential oil.
