Common Uses: Cypress is commonly used as an astringent to reduce heavy menstruation and heavy bleeding. The Chinese chewed the cones to heal their bleeding gums, while Hippocrates recommended cypress for treating hemorrhoids.
Suggested Uses: For heavy menstrual flow, massage diluted cypress all over your abdomen. You can also add it to your warm bath. For hemorrhoids, apply diluted cypress essential oil using 1-2 drops over the area concerned.
Safety Precautions: Cypress essential oil is generally safe, non-toxic and non-irritant. However, you can do a skin patch test by simply applying a small amount on your skin to check for sensitivity.
Keep out of the reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or lactating consult your healthcare practitioner.
Cypress essential oil has no known contraindications. However, it is best you purchase high-quality, unadulterated essential oils to get the benefits.
