Blue Cypress’ beautiful color and therapeutic properties are resulting in this oil becoming more frequently used in the personal care and cosmetics industries. This Cypress family member contains quaiazulene, providing anti-inflammatory properties offered in other blue oils such as yarrow, German chamomile and tansy. Blue Cypress Oil offers a middle to base note in fragrance blends, slowing the evaporation of top notes. It blends well with other wood notes and citrus scents.
Blue Cypress was a traditional medicine for thousands of years, lending credence to its current day uses. This native Australian tree was used as a skin wash for cuts and sores, to soothe abdominal cramping and as an analgesic and insect repellent. As a grounding base note, it is also useful for those of a nervous disposition, providing a calming and reassuring effect. An immune tonic, antibacterial and antiseptic, it helps treat and prevent infection.
This tropical conifer produces clear annual growth rings, and has been shown to be potentially useful for understanding past climate variability in northern Australia. Unique among ancient trees, this prehistoric aromatic offers soothing effects on body, mind and spirit.
“Anecdotal data has shown the oil to have good anti-inflammatory and pain–relieving properties against allergic hives, insects (like sand fly, bee, wasp, mosquito), rheumatoid arthritis, general joint pain and swelling. It has also been shown to be an anti-irritant, soothing nappy rash and reducing erythema in a small trial. The oil exhibits antiviral properties, being particularly effective against common warts (verruca), shingles (herpes zoster) and cold sores (herpes simplex). The oil also has been used for burns where it has significantly reduced the healing time and pain associated with the injury” (Webb).
