I have really opened up to Cypress essential oil. It truly shows how to trust and go with the flow in our daily lives. It is so easy to say just “let go” but to actually “let go” is not that easy. I believe that Cypress is a go-to oil for when you feel stuck, restless and unsure of what is to come and it can assist you in letting go of what ever you are holding onto that does not serve for a higher purpose. It’s fresh earthy aroma is said to help create feelings of security and grounding. This oil takes me into the woods on a hike, it truly reminds me that we are here on Earth, to live life in the present moment. Now, let’s get on to all the wonderful properties of this amazing oil.
