Profile

Cupressus sempervirens is a tall, long living evergreen, straight trunked, conical shaped conifer averaging approximately 100 ft in height, with slender dark green foliage. It bears small flowers and round brown-grey cones or seed nuts. The trees are harvested from 5 years onwards and continuing annually. Growing within the area of France and Spain, they also grow wild amongst the entire Mediterranean region, from England, across to the Balkan countries and including Northern Africa. The wood is highly prized for its hardness and durability. Once the leaves and terminal branches are collected, they are steam distilled to produce the essential oil. The color of Cypress Essential Oil is pale-yellow to almost colorless. It has a smokey, woody, sweet balsamic scent.
The Aromatherapy Place offers a variety of AUROMA Cypress Essential Oils to suit your preference. Over time, treat yourself to a special sensual experience by trying and comparing the qualities of each. There are slight variations in odor, color, and the levels of constituents within each oil. However, the oils are similar and can be used in place of one another.

 

BIBLICAL OIL: Cypress is celebrated in Scripture as a symbol of strength, security, and prosperity. The Bible mentions Cypress as the choice wood for building, trading and even weaponry. In Genesis 6:14, God commanded Noah to ‘make yourself and ark of gopher Wood,’ which in modern English is in fact ‘cypress.’ (Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS. Bible Oils: 12 most revered oils & their historic uses)

FACT: The Phoenicians and Cretans used the wood for building ships and houses, while the Egyptians made sarcophagi from it and the Greeks used it to carve statues of their gods. The Greek word ‘Sempervirens‘, from which the botanical name is derived, means ‘lives forever.’ The tree gave its name to the island of Cypress, where it used to be worshipped.

Auroma Quality

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.

Uses

  • In a Diffuser: Using a diffuser with an Essential Oil or Blend is an easy way to make your space smell wonderful, while using aromatherapy to revitalize and purify your indoor space. Cypress Essential Oil is said to have a calming, relaxing and sedative effect on both the mind and body by relieving nervous stress and anxiety.
  • Skin care: Cypress oil has been suggested for skin and beauty care for oily and overhydrated skin, as well as helping to curb excessive sweating. See “Cautions.”
  • Just to smell: You can enjoy the aromatherapy of your favorite Essential oil or Blend without even taking it out of the bottle. Keep a bottle in your purse or your car. Simply open-up and smell. This can be particularly helpful during times of stress.

Do not apply directly to skin. May case skin irritation in some individuals.  Always dilute with a carrier oil. A skin test is recommended prior to use on the skin.
