Tips for using
Cypress Essential Oil:
  • Aromatically You can inhale Cypress Essential Oil directly from the bottle if you are feeling stuck as this oil has a stimulating effect on the emotions and can give you a boost. You can also diffuse this oil with Lime Essential Oil in your home or offie to create an invigorating scent.
  • Topically If you are heading out on a run rubbing some Cypress Essential Oil into your feet and legs can support you while you exercise. This oil is also great to use if you experience oily skin. If you suffer from painful periods this is a good oil to massage onto your lower back or abdomen. You can also mix this Cypress Essential Oil with Eucalyptus Essential Oil and massage into skin to reduce cellulite, just follow the massage with a hot compress.

The oil of motion and flow

If you are feeling rigid, or like me, perfectionistic, Cypress Essential Oil can support you to feel more flexible and flowing. This oil encourages you to let go of your concerns and get out of your own way. This is a powerful oil that creates an energetic flow, moving what is stagnant within us. Often this stagnation can come from a need to control life rather than allowing things to flow organically. By diffusing or applying this oil topically you can be supported to experience more forward movement in your life.
