- Cypress, Wild
Distilled from the needles and cones of wild trees, in Corsica.
You may have smelled one hundred cypresses, but I guarantee you, you have never smelled this most exquisite and lovely of cypresses. This is the kind of essential oil that makes you rethink a lot of things in your life. Silver angels singing.
Cypress trees might seem to live forever. It is believed that some are two thousand years old!
They say that cypress is particularly beneficial to people undergoing change, bereavement, divorce, moving house, or any painful transition.
You can use it as needed. Take care you dilute if using in the bath. There is no way to tell if you will have a skin reaction. But in the bath is great. Also, use in a foot bath, in warm compresses, inhalation, or in a massage oil or body lotion or any kind of cream or ointment. You can use cypress in a room vaporizer (diffuser) and also include in your skincare regime--in the cleanser, as a toner, or in a nice light face lotion.
