Promoting vitality and boosting energetic feelings, Cypress oil can be used for its aromatic and topical benefits. Cypress oil is composed of monoterpenes, which can help improve the appearance of oily skin. It can also be applied topically to give the body an energizing lift. The chemical structure of Cypress oil also contributes to its renewing and uplifting fragrance. When used aromatically, Cypress produces a clean aroma that has both an invigorating and grounding effect on the emotions. Due to Cypress oil’s rejuvenating aroma and skin benefits, it is commonly used in spas and by massage therapists.

For this reason, it is crucial to get essential oils that are potent and pure. In order to guarantee effective essential oils, doTERRA subjects each batch of essential oils to the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® protocol. This protocol contains a series of thorough tests to ensure the maximum potency and purity of each oil sold.
