Cypress has a deep, earthy scent. One of it's key uses is to treat respiratory issues. It helps improve circulation throughout the lungs and body and strengthens the blood capillary walls. When diffused, it can help relieve whooping cough, asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues, including pleurisy and pulmonary tuberculosis. It helps treat water retention/edema as well as helping you reduce cellulite deposits. It tightens tissues and helps decrease any excessive flow of fluids, whether it be a runny nose, diarrhea, excessive menstrual flow or perspiration. Due to its antispasmodic properties, Cypress helps with cramps, spasms, and arthritis, as well as menstrual/menopausal issues. It is a general healing oil that can help treat gut infections, stimulates sluggish intestines, and help relieve hemorrhoids. It helps balance the nervous system and can help calm nervous tension, stress, and lack of sleep. It can also help you treat lack of concentration.
