This evergreen tree grows to great heights and produces a clean and fresh scent which re-energizes and stimulates. Commonly employed in massage therapy, when applied topically, cypress produces relief and relaxation by easing sore muscles and enhancing circulation. By promoting localized blood flow, the monoterpenes found in cypress oil also clear up oily skin conditions. When you diffuse, inhale directly, or gargle the oil (do not swallow or otherwise take internally), cypress also supports the respiratory system, clearing the pathways, and promoting healthy breathing. The overall effect of cypress is grounding and balancing, prompting healthy emotional reactions, which makes it a popular oil for times of grief, loss, or transitioning.
