Cupressus sempervirens -wild- Spain
This is a wonderfully clean forest-like smelling essential oil. It is very fresh & coniferous. It is a great oil for transitions and dealing with grief, is very protective and helps with courage. It is also very purifying.
Physically it can also help conditions where there is too much fluid in the body. It has been shown to be useful for haemorrhoids and varicose veins.
It blends well with cedarwood, chamomile, citrus oils, clary sage, frankincense, juniper berry, lavender & pine.
It is steamed distilled from the twigs and needles.
It will keep for around 2-3 years after opening if stored with lid tightly closed in a cool, dark area.
