Blue Cypress Essential Oil

Blue Cypress 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 Plexus 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.
