Our Cypress Essential Oil has a fresh, woody, resinous and deeply green aroma.
Cypress has been used for millennia medicinally as well as in spiritual practices. The tall, slender, long lived trees mature through many generations and are associated with endurance, strength and a forward or upward motion, making it excellent to use in times of grief and emotional lows (together with Frankincense and citrus oils). Cypress is often included in pre-workout blends for exercise, yoga and other movement routines and rituals.
In perfumery, Cypress is a tenacious fragrance component and author Scott Cunningham recommends combining Cypress Leaf and Patchouli to create an ambergris-like substitute (one part Patchouli with two parts Cypress Leaf).
