Cypress Essential Oil
Cypress Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the Mediterranean Cypress tree. It is native to the coastal areas of the Mediterranean and Black seas. The clean, fresh, woody scent is used in natural personal deodorants. A good massage with Cypress Essential Oil may help reduce anxiety and depression.
Cypress Essential Oil acts a natural detoxifier of the body. It stimulates blood flow, resulting in sweating. Its diuretic properties help remove excess water and salt from the body. Alleviation of excess fluid buildup can even relieve pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
In addition to its anti-bacterial and anti-septic qualities, it can aid wound healing by aiding the clotting of blood. Other circulatory benefits include vasoconstriction, which can aid with varicose veins, and even shrink hemorrhoids.
Because of its diuretic properties, Cypress Essential Oil aids in the elimination of waste products and other harmful substances from within the human body. It can induce sweating, which helps your body purge excess salt and water. The body benefits inside and out, as acne and other skin disorders caused by toxic buildup are voided.
