Blue Cypress Essential Oil

The aroma of Australian Blue Cypress Oil is woody yet sweet with a fruity/lemony quality. It is quite pleasant, and I can see its aroma being well suited for emotional as well spiritual applications. Although I would not exactly describe Blue Cypress Oil as being similar to Rosewood, Rosalina or Petitgrain, you are likely to enjoy the aroma Blue Cypress if you have a kinship to these other lighter, sweet wood oils.

I've read several references to Blue Cypress Oil being a grounding oil, and I can see it being useful for that purpose or for work with the root chakra especially where balance is needed. Within chakra work, Blue Cypress Oil may be helpful for use with the Sacral and Solar Plexis chakras.

Blue Cypress Essential Oil may be blue, but also can be clear or very pale yellow. The color is dependent upon the amount of guaiazulene that the distillation contains. Guaiazulene acts as a noteworthy anti-inflammatory.

Important Notes: The essential oil information provided within the Essential Oil Properties & Profiles area is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. The oil photos are intended to represent the typical and approximate color of each essential oil. However, oil color can vary based on harvesting, distillation and other factors. Profiles for several absolutes are included within the directory, and are denoted as such.

General Safety Information: Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children. A skin patch test should be conducted prior to using an oil that you've never used before. Instructions on conducting a skin patch test and more safety information can be found by visiting the Safety Information page. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
