Botanical Name: Cupressus Sempervirens
Botany and Origins: Cypress is a coniferous evergreen tree native to the eastern Mediterranean and can be found along coastal lines of north Africa, Italy, Spain and the Balkans. Most of the oil is steam distilled in France. An old species of tree dating back to the Pliocene era: 5.3 to 1.8 million years ago. It can grow for over 1000 years.
History: Ancient Egyptians burnt cypress with juniper and pine to purify air in temples. It has been planted in Mediterranean landscapes since antiquity. Ancient Greeks mashed the cones and steeped them in wine to treat dyssentry and coughing up blood. Hippocrates suggested it be used on haemorroids.

Aromatic blending is a combination of creativity and science. Essential oils will evaporate at different rates because of their molecular compositions. Oils that evaporate the quickest, usually within 1-2 hours, are called top notes. Oils that evaporate within 2-4 hours are considered middle notes and oils that take the longest time to evaporate - up to a few days - are referred to as base notes. Each of our oils have the fragrance 'Note' listed on the bottle. We recommend the following formula in creating your personal blend: Top note: 2-3 drops; Middle note: 4-8 drops; Base note: 1-3 drops.
We can feel a little different each day, so follow your nose and intuition when blending for your personal preference.
Use: 2-3 drops in diffuser, full body bath, foot bath or diluted in 10ml carrier oil for massage. A few drops in cooking.
