Our organically crafted blue cypress essential oil, also known as northern cypress pine, is steam distilled from the wood of the blue cypress tree sustainably cultivated in northern Australia. This essential oil is a stunning blue color, which is unique to essential oil crafted from wood materials. One of our favorite ways of using this essential oil is to help usher balance and calm to the body, mind, and spirit.
The rich, hardy wood of the Callitris intratropica cypress tree creates a fruity, smokey, resinous, balsamic, woodsy, honey-like essential oil. Blue cypress essential oil is a gorgeous blue color, due to the presence of the naturally occurring chemical component, guaiazulene, which is incredibly rare in essential oils derived from wood. Blue cypress essential oil has excellent fixative properties and is often used as a base note in perfumery. Along with promoting balance, blue cypress essential oil is used in wound care as it is helpful in reducing pain and inflammation and the presence of unwanted microbial activity. This essential oil is used to soothe burns, help relieve bug bites, itchy hives, topical allergic reactions, and other skin challenges. Blue cypress essential oil supports a healthy immune system. Emotionally and energetically, blue cypress essential oil is calming and grounding. This essential oil is a welcome support during times of situational anxiety and/or depression.
