Our cypress essential oil is steam distilled from the reddish bark and branches of the Taiwan species of the tree, Chamaecyparis taiwanensis. The scent of cypress oil can be described as spicy and fresh, reminiscent of other conifers but softer and sweeter.  

Uses & Benefits

  • Cypress oil is especially useful for topical use on joint and muscle pain
  • Use in a diffuser or air freshening spray for calming and energizing scent 
  • Use it with frankincense or lemon oil (in a carrier base oil) to hydrate skin in dry weather 
  • Cypress may help to clear skin imperfections such as age spots and varicose veins 
  • Use cypress oil in an Epsom salt bath for relief of general tension and body pain 
  • Helps with urinary infections, circulatory problems, menopause, and coughs 
  • Strong antiseptic properties mean it's useful in any application involving cleaning and detoxifying. 

The soft, aromatic wood of these cypress trees has been in high demand for centuries. But with its slow growth and restricted growing region, this species has become vulnerable and is now protected in China and Taiwan. We source our cypress essential oil from a Taiwanese supplier who collects oil from fallen branches. The oil content of this species of tree can be as much as 60% of the total wood by weight, so a small amount of wood can produce a lot of oil. 

We have a mission of sustainability that is fully expressed in our small agroforestry farmer-produced essential oils. In the spirit of fair trade and environmental stewardship, we do our best to partner with sustainable and fair trade businesses whenever possible. We aim to support those working to support the ecological conservation of vulnerable plant and tree species. We support the preservation of indigenous forests by growing high-value crops in harmony with the surrounding forests.

    Great product! Very fast shipment which was great since all my kids had colds. Mixed it with coconut oil and put it on the arches of my kids feet while they slept and they woke up feeling much better! Would definitely recommend!

    This really works. I've used it for almost a week. After mixing 30 drops with half once olive oil, which is strong. I put it on the bottom of my feet throughout the day and topically. Because it is strong.

    My allergies have returned with a vengeance. Even inside my home, once the furnace was turned on, I had allergy attacks. Out of desperation I looked for some essential oil that would help.
