Cypress essential oil is distilled from tall evergreen trees native to Southern Europe and Western Asia. The fresh, clean, energizing scent of Cypress essential oil is commonly diffused for an uplifting, aromatic boost. Alongside its invigorating aroma, Cypress essential oil offers a cooling topical sensation and has a unique chemical makeup that makes it an ideal addition to skincare routines.
Why should I add Cypress oil to my collection? One of Cypress essential oil’s main monoterpenes (a chemical constituent) is α-pinene, a component shared by other powerhouse oils such as Frankincense oil, Douglas Fir oil, and Helichrysum oil. This monoterpene helps maintain a healthy looking complexion while also giving an invigorating sensation to the skin. Cypress essential oil also has high contents of limonene—a key constituent in citrus essential oils—and carene, which combine in Cypress essential oil to give it both intensive cleansing properties as well as its distinctively grounding yet stimulating aroma.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
For external use only. Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
