Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
Cypress Essential Oil Information
Common Name: Cypress
Latin Name: Cupressus sempervirens
Plant part: Needles/leaves
Distillation Method: Steam
Distillation Date: Spring 2017
Shelf Life: About 3 years after bottle is opened
Country of Origin: Spain, organic.
Aroma: It is slightly masculine with soft woody notes. Working with it on the dry down initially, I found it to have soothing green needle notes topped with hints of fresh citrus ones. I find myself coming back to this one more and more to find more subtle nuances that make this such a fantastic oil to work with. It is definitely more of a middle note which is perfect for when one is making blends to diffuse during colds.
Personal notes: Many know how particular I am about my essential oils produced from trees. Although I was hoping for a French Cypress this year, this one from Spain surprised me! It is soft and pleasant and makes for a wonderful addition to any wellness blend. It also blends well with Eucalyptus Ironbark which is another wonderful oil to diffuse during colds!
Safety Data: Generally recognized as safe unless the essential oil has become oxidized. Take care to store in a cool, dark area out of reach of littles. In some cases, strong aromatics can cause asthmatic reactions so caution is urged around those with asthma.
Blend and apply to chest area during colds to soothe coughs.
