Cypress Essential Oil Uses
Cypress Essential Oil is one of my favorite essential oils to blend with.
Aromatically, the woody aroma of Cypress Essential Oil blends well with a number of essential oils including other woody oils, mint oils, the citrus oils, especially grapefruit, and it is beautiful when blended in low dilution with florals.
Cypress Essential Oil is one of the first essential oils that I reach for when I'm tired or need help being able to concentrate.
Peter Holmes recommends Cypress Essential Oil to help improve self-confidence, willpower, perseverence and motivation. [Reference: Peter Holmes LAc, MH, Aromatica Volume 2: A Clinical Guide to Essential Oil Therapeutics, Applications and Profiles (London and Philadelphia: Singing Dragon, 2019, 186-187.] The cypress tree is mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible: "I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it." - Isaiah 41:19-20 (NIV)
