Our fresh and fortifying Cypress Essential Oil conjures evergreen images of timeless tree-lines partnered with serene blue skies. Inhale deeply and harness the potent power of stately cypress, which has anointed bodies throughout the world for millennia.
The ancient Egyptians used the oily extract in cosmetic preparation, while the Tibetans added Cypress to their incense to purify their internal and external environments. Today, cypress is planted in cemeteries and graveyards in order to bring peace to all. Use the comforting hug of Cypress Essential Oil to ease heartache, overcome challenges, and navigate your way through the churning tides of grief. On skin it can be toning and drying, said to balance excess and with emotions it can “dry up” excess tears.
This crisp essence purifies pores, balances excess skin oil, lifts the spirits, and increases patience. Cypress Essential Oil is a wonderful deodorant, and is commonly used in colognes, lotions, and shampoos. Feel, look, and smell like the strength and spirit of sovereign Cypress trees!
“He told of the Magnolia, spread, high as a cloud, high overhead! The Cypress and her spire; of flowers that with one scarlet gleam cover a hundred leagues, and seem to set the hills on fire.”
~ William Wordsworth
“The Greek myth of Kyparissos explains its mythical origins and cultural associations… the cypress became inextricably associated with grief, mourning and the Underworld, but also with transitions and transformations. The species name sympervirens, translates as ‘always living’.”
~ Jennifer Peace Rhind, Fragrance and Wellbeing
“Cypress has frequencies that are in transition between the physical and the spiritual…”
~ Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
