Cypress is an adaptable, long-lived evergreen native to the Eastern Mediterranean. Now widely naturalized over European, Eastern European, and North African regions, it is also grown commercially in New Zealand and Australia both as an attractive ornamental and for its scented, durable wood.

Our Therapeutic Quality Cypress Essential Oil is Wildcrafted in beautiful Crete, steam distilled from the tree’s fresh or dried twigs and needles. This pale yellow to olive oil has a sweet, woody, smoky aroma with strong mid to base notes. The fragrance of cypress oil blends well with cardamom, cedarwood, clary sage, lavender, orange, pine, rosemary, and sandalwood essential oils.


Cypress Essential Oil has properties that include antibacterial, antirheumatic, antispasmodic (especially respiratory), antitussive, astringent, calming, deodorant, neurotonic, phlebotonic, and has a hormone-like action similar to estrogen.

In both Western and Eastern traditions, it has been used for oily skin, excessive perspiration and sweaty feet, swelling of the hands and feet, rashes, bruises, hemorrhoids, and as a spray or ointment for varicose veins. Musculoskeletal uses include muscle cramps and rheumatism. It has also been used for respiratory issues such as asthma (by properly trained medical professionals only) and bronchitis. For coughs, a good blend is Cypress with Thyme and Lavender Essential Oils.

Cypress Essential Oil has long been a favorite for many issues related to mental and emotional support: Anxiety, stress, nervous and chronic tension, hyper-excitability, adrenal fatigue/neurasthenia, treatment-resistant chronic pain, eating disorders, repressed emotions, difficulty adjusting to change, pessimism, self-doubt, and for hospice/dying.

To regulate their reproductive systems, women have used it for dysmenorrhea, excessive menstrual bleeding, menstrual cramps, PMS, and menopause.

CAUTION: Cypress Essential Oil is non-toxic, non-irritant, and non-sensitizing. As it has structural similarities to estrogen, its use should be avoided if there is a history or presence of estrogen-dependent cancers. Due to its drying effects, do not use with scanty periods.

More Info:

To the ancient Greeks and Romans, Cypress had many associations with both immortality and death. In Latin, its genus name sempervirens means “ever living”. Sacred to Pluto, god of the underworld, it was an important part of their funerary customs, whether by placing a bough by the deceased’s house or planting a Cypress tree by the grave. The ancient Egyptians also considered it sacred and used it for incense and as a medicine, and for Muslims, Cypress is the principle cemetery tree.

This tree’s associations with long life go beyond folklore: Some specimens alive today may have first sprouted over 1000 years ago!
