Cypress Essential Oil Facts

Cypress essential oil comes from the cypress tree, Cupressus sempervirens. It is a medium-sized coniferous evergreen tree that is known for its longevity. The cypress tree is said to be a source of solace for those experiencing grief.

The dark green leaves and twigs contain most of the essential oil. These plant parts are steam distilled to make cypress essential oil.

Cypress oil is known for its purifying qualities. In the cosmetic industry, this oil is used for its astringent, anti-dandruff, anti-aging properties as well as its fragrance.
