Traditional & Historical Information
Cypress oil has been recognised as a medicinal source since ancient Greece, where it was used to stem blood flow on wounds, and also for dysentery. It was later cited in medicinal texts of 14th Century Spain but little thereafter, until more modern times. Today, science has confirmed its astringent and haemostatic properties, and other medicinal benefits. It offers a wide range of therapeutic uses... circulatory benefit, detoxification, respiratory health, cramps and bleeding, excessive sweating, chilblains, inflammation and diarrhoea. The vigorous fresh scent is also considered excellent for clearing the mind and strengthening the nerves.
