If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Cypress essential oil and its many wonders.
Originating in France, the branches and leaves of Cupressus sempervirens are steam distilled to produce this bright, herbaceous, and slightly woody oil. Cypress is a middle note oil that blends well with Cardamom, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Geranium, Jasmine, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Myrtle, Orange, Pine, Rose, and Tea Tree.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in religious ceremonies. Cypress, along with Patchouli and Sandalwood, has been used in Hindu ceremonies to honor the Trimurti. This oil helps balance the Solar Plexus and Throat Chakras. Cypress is a wonderful addition to your beauty regimen, particularly for older women, as this oil helps minimize hair loss and the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins by promoting circulation. Use this oil to help alleviate minor pain associated with menstrual cramps and arthritis (combine with a carrier oil such as Coconut Oil). Cypress can be added to a diffuser to elevate mood and aid the respiratory system.
