This lovely blue oil is obtained by steam distilling the wood of this native Australian tree. The only other “blue” essential oils known in aromatherapy are obtained from flowers. Like most of the “blue” oils, Blue Cypress is a wonderful support for reddened, congested skin, can help keep minor skin breaks “clean”, soothe bug bites, and can help with respiratory support. For emotional uses, it is felt to be calming and soothing to a restless spirit. It has been used in perfumery as a “fixative” and as a grounding note in essential oil blends.
