With a woody, balsamic, and fresh scent with subtle sweet notes, Blue Cypress Essential Oil is a fantastic addition to your therapeutic essential oil collection. Obtained by steam distilling the wood of this native Australian tree, Blue Cypress is rare in that the only other "blue" essential oils known in aromatherapy are obtained from flowers, not woods. Like most of the "blue" oils, Blue Cypress Essential Oil is a wonderful support skin health for reddened, congested skin. It can also help keep minor skin breaks "clean" and as well as support healthy respiratory functioning. This oil can be used in perfumery as a "fixative" and as a grounding note in essential oil blends.

Add equal amounts of Blue Cypress, Myrrh and Frankincense Carteri to a carrier oil (Fractionated Coconut, Jojoba) and apply to reddened, irritated skin at the 1-3% dilution.
Diffuse Blue Cypress with any floral oil (Rose, Ylang Ylang) for soothing the mind; Blue Cypress also blends well with most citrus oils.
