Product Summary

A hemostat and a decongestant, Cypress Essential Oil is considered one of the most powerful astringent actions in aromatherapy.

Its properties act to strengthen and tone the circulatory and nervous systems and relieve circulatory and lymphatic congestion.

Cypress is useful for all bronchial complaints and it is a choice spasmolytic to assist the body with a whooping cough.

Aromatic medicine use recommends Cypress for lung diseases like tuberculosis and pleurisy. It is a decongestant for prostate, veins, and the lymphatic system. The bitter constituents strengthen a weak pancreas.

Cypress in known to be an intestinal and neuro-tonic. It helps to prevent the spread of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and edema, especially in the lower limbs.

The oil may be combined with those of Clary Sage, Lemon, and Geranium, rose and applied as an ointment for hemorrhoids and varicose veins.

In all of aromatherapy there is perhaps no oil more effective than Cypress Essential Oil to assist with an infection of the throat, nose, or bronchi in its early phase.

Used at the very first signs of a sore throat, it is typically sufficient to arrest the process.

Cypress Essential Oil has astringent qualities and is a gentle diuretic. It can be used diluted in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy because it is particularly helpful, in a cooling lotion or gel, for varicose veins.

Added to a bath, lotion, or wash, it can help hemorrhoids. Its gentle diuretic action can assist in decongesting fluid retention in heavy, aching legs and swollen ankles.
