Cypress

Cupressus sempervirens

Cypress from Aromatics

Cypress

Cupressus sempervirens

Description

A great antispasmodic and calming for an asthmatic attack.  Useful for relief of swelling and pain of varicose veins, especially with a little Lemon oil added to the blend. Calms & soothes! Cypress is astringent and therefore useful for areas of excess fluid. Try adding it to skin care blends for oily skin; it is great to use with a clay mask. It can be great for stopping sweaty feet! When spasmodic coughing is the concern, smelling a few drops of the oil on a tissue can calm the lungs and can also stop an asthma attack in the beginning stages. Cypress can be used in a diffuser to bring a lovely, woodsy aroma to the room. Often used in blends for menstrual symptoms and to reduce cramps. Great for restless leg syndrome

Safety + Shelf Life

Non-toxic, non-irritating. If oxidized, it may cause skin irritation or sensitization. Some sources recommend avoiding Cypress essential oil during pregnancy, but there is no research to support this statement. To be extra cautious, take care when using with asthmatics. Cyrpess can be either very helpful with bronchial asthma or a potential irritant.

The suggested shelf life is 2-3 years.
