Cypress is an evergreen native to the Mediterranean. It has refreshingly pine-like scent and is the epitome of what fresh and crisp smells like. It is used in contemporary colognes, personal care products, and aromatherapy.
Cypress essential oil has astringent properties which help to tighten loose muscles and skin including varicose veins, ruptured capillaries, and hemorrhoids alike. Its astringent effects also prevent the loss of hair (coupled with its cleansing properties, allowing your hair follicles to be clean of debris blocking growth). Cypress essential oil has a fresh scent which works as a natural deodorant, eliminating bacteria and imparting a clean sensation.
Cypress essential oil is an invigorating and recommended addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, insect repellents and aromatherapy.
