With flu season around the corner, it’s important to start prioritizing your health and wellness and make sure you have the tools you need for a strong defense. One of our favorite essential oils for this time of year is Cypress essential oil, also known as Cupressus sempervirens.
Cypress comes from an ornamental tree and is a member of the Cupressaceae family. Native to many regions including northern America, Africa, southeastern Europe and western Asia, cypress essential oil is a widely used medicinal plant. Research has shown that cypress essential oil has antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant benefits making it a great essential oil for overall wellness. Here are some of the ways cypress essential oil can support your wellness daily:
Detox - Detoxing and cleansing the body can have a major impact on overall health and immunity. Studies have shown that cypress essential oil can be beneficial for the health of the liver as well as help aid in removal of toxins from the body. Not only that, but Cypress essential oil also has a great deal of antioxidants which can help to stave off the damage done by free radicals that cause oxidative stress.
Antibacterial - Cypress essential oil is also known for its antibacterial, antimicrobial and antibiofilm qualities. This powerful oil has the ability to effectively clean microorganisms that are stuck to surfaces including the bacteria E. coli.
Respiratory Support - If flu season gets the best of you and you find yourself dealing with the common cold, a cough or any other respiratory distress, cypress can be a great help. Cypress essential oil contains camphene, a molecule that is commonly used in herbal cough suppressants. For this reason as well as the fact that cypress is a natural antispasmodic, it has been used for centuries to help treat coughs, colds, bronchitis and asthma.
If you are looking for a healthful and robust blend that contains cypress essential oil, our Organic Wellness™ Essential Oil is a great option as it not only contains cypress, but also contains a number of other essential oils that have been handpicked for their immune and overall health and wellness supporting benefits. Our Organic Wellness Blend can be easily diffused so you can reap the benefits of cypress at home, in your office or your favorite space. It can also be rolled on with our Organic Wellness Essential Oil Roll-on, designed for convenience and ease of use anytime, anywhere.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and if there’s one thing you hear more than anything it’s how important self-care is to overall wellbeing. What does that mean? Just as every person is an individual, what feeds our soul and nourishes our spirit—and what we need at this moment in our life—looks very different for each person and may change throughout our lives. The challenge is finding and creating habits that fit best with your lifestyle. The great news is that establishing one good habit feeds another. For example, if you exercise more, you are more likely to get better sleep, which will in turn help to clear your mind and regain your focus.
