Cypress Essential Oil

Cypress, Latin name Cupressus sempervirens, is an evergreen tree that is native to the southeastern  Mediterranean part of Europe.


These extremely long-lived trees, were burned as incense in Nepal and was used by the ancient Egyptians to make coffins. The Greeks dedicated the Cypress tree to Pluto, the god of the underworld, which is probably why you will often find Cypress trees planted outside of cemeteries.

Most of the Cypress essential oil is produced in France, Spain, and Morocco. It has a soft herbaceous/ conifer scent and blends well with most essential oils. (I like it blended with citrus and floral oils, I find it very comforting). Cypress has many properties that are useful in aromatherapy. May be helpful for:

  • acne & oily skin

  • excessive sweating

  • easing muscular aches & pains

  • PMS sumtoms (like cramps).

  • vericose veins

  • feelings of stress.

Emotionally, Cypress is all about wisdom, transitions and finding the strength within.  Robbi Zeck, author of “The Blossoming Heart” says that “Cypress supports and holds the space for the soul to remain in balance.”

Contraindications: Cypress essential oil has been reported to be as non-toxic, non-irritating, & non-sensitizing,  Use caution if you are pregnant.
