How to Use Cypress Essential Oil

Physical benefits of cypress essential oil

Cypress essential oil strongly promotes a healthy flow of fluids and energy while supporting the vessel walls in the body. Cypress oil is often referred to as the fluid regulator and cleanser. This oil targets lymph and blood vessels. Cypress essential oil supports the Triple Burner Meridian, which is associated with the lymph system. It does this by promoting healthy lymph circulation. Stagnation in the lymph system is associated with cysts, water retention, and chronic infections. In Chinese medicine cypress oil moves blood and reduces dampness to address any stagnant fluids in the body.*

The cypress tree is revered for its longevity; traditional Chinese medicine believes it slows down the aging process. Cypress oil’s natural anti-infection properties and its ability to transform congested fluids make it effective for supporting the immune and reproductive systems. This is especially helpful since these are the systems that often decline first with age.*

Emotional benefits of cypress essential oil

In Chinese medicine stagnation of fluids relates to feelings of frustration and irritability. The lymph system relates to feeling limited or restricted. Cypress essential oil supports the release of repressive thought patterns and a move towards a flexible approach to life. By releasing the past, cypress can help the flow of new ideas, emotions, and thought patterns.*
