INCI Name: Cupressus Sempervirens (Cypress) Oil
Native to Southern Europe, Italian Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) has spread to North Africa and North America and is cultivated in France, Spain, and Morocco. Cypress trees are long-lived and do not easily decay (thus the Latin name sempervirens -
lives forever); this is perhaps the primary reason why the Greeks chose Cypress wood to sculpt statues of their immortal gods. Its natural chemical composition makes Cypress Essential Oil widely used within skin and hair care, holistic wellbeing, massage, soap making, fragrancing and cleaning applications intended to support wellness and a healthy environment.
Along with helping to encourage healthy circulation, Cypress Essential Oil is a lovely choice when looking to ease unwanted muscle spasms as well as to reduce the presence of unwelcome bacteria. Cypress Oil is an effective astringent and is well suited for inclusion in facial toners, after shaves and other applications that benefit from astringency. Cypress contains monoterpenes, making it beneficial for oily skin conditions. It is also a good choice for inclusion within natural deodorant formulations and formulations intended to help balance oily skin and hair. Cypress Essential Oil can also help in keeping homes fresh and clean when added to household cleansers.
Cypress Essential Oil is also recommended for inclusion in blends formulated to bring ease and relief in the instance of spasmodic coughing, or to help open the airways in the early onset moments of a minor asthma attack. Cypress Oil deepens and expands the breath and is very beneficial to use in your diffuser or formulations in times of stress.
Emotionally, Cypress Essential Oil is a gently stimulating, uplifting essential oil that is ideal for aromatherapy, massage, wellness and soap making applications intended to energize and uplift the body and mind. Cypress Oil is also a welcome support during periods of situational anxiety and depression.
