Cypress Essential Oil


Cypress Essential Oil is always obtained from the Cupressus sempervirens tree. The wood of the cypress tree is expecially durable and was thus used in ancient times for the sarcophagi of Egyptian mummies. This lead them to think that Cypress held protective powers.

Today, we'll find Cypress being used within a number of applications within aromatherapy such as being a good vasoconstrictor. What this translates to is narrowing dilated blood vessels which can in turn lead to impoving broken capillaries on the face and varocose veins. For that type of use, it's best to blend with lemon and frankincense in a base cream.

Coughs, colds and Asthma also see some reductions when vaporised Cypress oil is used as it can have a sedative effect on the nerve endings along with having the bonus quality of being a decongestant and antibacterial.

Emotionally, Cypress is often used when major changes in life are happening or about to occur - due to a certain strenghtening and calming effect on the mind. This can also make it ideal during monthly cycles and menopause.

Cypress oil also blends quite well with benzoin, bergamot, cedar virginian, clary sage, fir silver, frankincense, juniper berry, lavender, lemon, mandarin, marjoram sweet, myrrh, orange bitter and sweet, pine, rosemary, and sandalwood.
