5 Important Properties of Cypress Essential Oil

Promoting blood flow, reducing perspiration, and relieving muscle pain are just a few of the handy uses in this oil?s bag-o-tricks. Cypress essential oil enhances security and a sense of well-being, while offering antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and astringent properties. Let?s take a look at some of what this oil has to offer.

Antibacterial

Antibacterial products protect against infections and diseases caused by – you guessed it – bacteria. This includes bacteria that invade the digestive, urinary, and respiratory tract, as well as oral bacteria that can damage dental health. Cypress’ antibacterial activity does not impact the natural flora in the intestines and stomach, but only combats the damaging bacteria that may have invaded.

Antiseptic

Antiseptics reduce the risk of infection when someone has open wounds, cuts, scrapes, or other injuries. Cypress essential oil possesses antiseptic properties and so can support proper healing, without worry of infection.

Anti-Inflammatory

Most bodily pain issues are caused by inflammation of some sort, either internal or external. Essential oils often provide the body with anti-inflammatory activity. Cypress is one of these oils. This oil comes in handy especially for inflammation of the respiratory tract and sore muscles and joints. Whether topical, aromatic, or internal, redness and irritation can be supported through any applicable essential oil applications.

Antifungal

Fungi can infect a person externally or internally and produce more fatalities than other types of infection. The nose, throat, and ears are most at risk for infection and, if left untreated, the issue can spread to the brain. Cypress essential oil fortifies the body’s natural defenses against fungi and the infections they cause, making this oil a superior combatant against foreign invaders.

Astringent

Astringents are compounds that shrink body tissue, which can be especially beneficial when it comes to skin issues, like acne or bug bites. Astringents don’t stop at the skin, however; they support and strengthen muscle, hair, and even the intestines, protecting against loss of important bodily tissue. Cypress is a powerful astringent, which means it can fortify all of the above.
