How to Use: Cypress

The aromatic and resinous leaves of the cypress tree produce an essential oil that is used in aromatherapy. Cypress oil is slightly astringent making it an excellent choice to hydrate and condition oily skin. Cypress oil has a skin-tightening, pore-reducing effect and is often used in facial and skin care formulations. Cypress also helps to alleviate poor circulation problems and relieve excess fluid retention and so is one of the essential oils often recommended for cellulite massage blends and treatment of varicose veins.

Preparation Methods & Dosage :Use cypress essential oil in massage blends, baths, diffusers, and aroma lamps.
