  Cypress (no ratings yet)
Cupressus sempervirens, organically produced, steam-distilled young tips, France.
• Astringent
• Circulatory Stimulant
• Compress for hemorrhoids
• Hormonal effects
• Grief - blend with Rose or Jasmine


Young green tips are pruned, and lovingly distilled to yield a truly unusual oil. I love Cypress Oil, and I especially love this fresh new specimen!

Cypress is a known astringent, excellent for oily skin, and may be useful for circulatory and respiratory problems.

It is often used in blends to ease arthritis pain. Can ease the pain of aching muscles or menstrual cramps. Stimulates circulation. I have seen it recommended in a compress to treat hemorrhoids.

Emotionally, Cypress is comforting in case of loss and grief; the traditional oils used to treat grief are Rose and Jasmine. Adding a touch of Cypress to either or both of them can cut the sweetness of a grief blend, and, in my mind, add a freeing note. A wonderful blend for a man who is struggling with losses. It is a wonderful oil for helping us survive times of overwhelming transitions, moving, changes in jobs or in relationships.

Peter Holmes, in The Energetics of Western Herbs indicates that Cypress Essential Oil regulates menstruation and menopause, increases hormones, that Cypress’s comprehensive action—endocrine, neural and tissular—engages in a number of gynecological conditions characterized by blood congestion, fluid congestion, and tension. He recommends its use for heavy periods, intermenstrual bleeding, even for fibroids and cysts, endometritis, and for gynecological conditions arising from emotional causes.

It is also alleged to increase concentration and might be a worthwhile addition to a study blend.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
