Cypress Essential Oil Benefits:
Cypress essential oil is derived from tall evergreen trees. The fresh, clean aroma of this natural remedy has a way of filling your space with energy and refreshing qualities that will help you feel like the best version possible! Monoterpenes in cypress oils are what give it its beneficial properties for oily skin conditions; they reduce blemishes while also helping overall health on dry patches or around areas where excessive sweating can occur due to temperature changes (such as summertime). Grounding effects mean this oil makes an excellent choice for diffusion therapy during work hours – just diffuse away those stressors!
The ancient Egyptians were well acquainted with cypress trees. The Greeks even dedicated a sacred tree to Pluto, god of the underworld and this use can be seen in cemeteries today where they are often planted near graves.
