Cypress Essential Oil

cypressDistilled from branches and foliage from the cypress tree. Cypress essential oil is commonly utilized for its ease on breathing. It can be used to help ease restricted, tight muscles, and also can be used topically to aid localized blood circulation. A mix of cypress as well as grapefruit is commonly used in health spa treatments for beautifying legs and skin.

Derived from the branches of the tall evergreen tree, Cypress essential oil has a fresh, clean aroma that’s energizing and refreshing. Cypress is frequently used in spas and by massage therapists for its ability to soothe tight, tense muscles, and promote circulation.
