Product Description

Irish Apothecary's Own Brand
100% Pure Essential Oil

Cypress Oil is a member of the Cupressaceae family. This oil has a smoky, sweet-balsamic tenacious odour and is classed as a middle note. Cypress blends well with citrus, floral, spicy and woodsy oils.

Cypress is antirheumatic, antiseptic and antispasmodic. It is beneficial for oily skin, repelling insects, muscular cramping and the respiratory and nervous systems.

Landscapes of Southern France and Greece are blessed with this statuesque evergreen. The cypress is a perennial, conical-shaped tree that towers about 80 feet (28 meters) high. It is an evergreen with dark green foliage, tiny flowers and round brown-grey cones with seed nuts inside. The wood is hard and durable, and reddish-yellow in colour. Furniture made from cypress wood is impervious to insect attacks.

Cypress symbolised everlastingness to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who used the wood for building their houses and furniture. The Phoenicians and Cretans used cypress wood for building ships and homes. The Egyptians used the wood for making sarcophagi (coffins). The trees are commonly found in churchyards and cemeteries throughout Europe.

Cypress has been traditionally used to beautify both the skin and scalp. The astringent nature of this oil is beneficial for summertime skin, or whenever there are oily or sweaty conditions. You can also routinely depend on cypress to keep your home fresh and clean when added to your household cleansers. Cypress French has a woody, nutty and pleasantly smoky aroma with a slightly spicy, resinous undertone.


Cypress oil is an astringent, styptic, antispasmodic, sedative and deodorant. Due to this, it has a range of highly effective uses. It is handy for all respiratory problems that involve spasms, such as influenza, bronchitis and emphysema. Cypress clears up congestion and eliminates phlegm that builds up in the respiratory tract and lungs.

Cypress oil’s ability to stimulate blood flow and its vaso-constricting properties make it helpful for haemorrhoids and varicose veins. It has also been deemed beneficial for heavy periods. Staying on topic, it is valuable in the treatment of menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes and irritability, and menstrual problems such as premenstrual tension.

If you’re looking to heal cuts fast, look no further than cypress. The antiseptic qualities in cypress oil are due to the presence of camphene, an essential component. Cypress oil can treat both external and internal wounds, and it prevents infections. Because of cypress oil’s antispasmodic qualities, it inhibits problems associated with spasms, such as muscle cramps and muscle pulls.

Cypress is soothing in times of transition and change. Cypress oil has sedative effects, and it induces a peaceful and relaxed feeling when used aromatically or topically. It is also rich in energising characteristics, and it stimulates the senses of happiness and ease which can be particularly valuable for people who are undergoing emotional stress, having trouble sleeping, or recently experienced trauma or shock.

This pure essential oil is undiluted, unadulterated and created just for you. It can be used in your diffuser (3-5 drops, depending on diffuser size, for whole water capacity), in your skincare, applied directly on the skin (patch test first) or as you please. It is very effective with the tunnelling method or for an instant energy change.
When we diffuse an essential oil, we passively ingest the molecules in the air. As they enter our bloodstream, we are benefitting from the intelligence and healing properties of the blend. Bring or send back your bottle for a same blend refill and receive €1.50 off your purchase price! 

Close lid tightly during uses. It is best to store your pipette separately. If you are using your product with the pipette on frequent usage, ensure the pipette is empty when placing back into your product. This will prevent your pipette from degenerating. It is advisable to patch test product before use. Do not ingest. Keep out of reach from children. Store in a cool dry place. Take necessary precautions when using other medicines and during pregnancy.

An essential oil wouldn’t typically be used on an oil burner as its medicinal healing benefits will be burned off. We would use a fragrance oil on an oil burner as it blooms with heat and evokes the sensory organs for you to respond and feel a certain way. They can be found here.

Amber Glass with aluminium cap, product includes a dropper and pipette enclosed.
