Cypress answers to no one; not Spruce or Pine or Douglas fir or any of the other conifers she rides with. She is her own scent, masculine, feminine and somewhere all the way in between. She smells like an acrid Elemi and a little of Pine without the balsamic note. And true to Cypress, she’s a little sour and dry in a lemon kind a way. I don’t hold one fascinating note against her, not with her complexity and value she has on skin. This is a hydrosol I really wanted to get into the apothecary before Father’s Day because it is so beneficial for razor bumps and cuts. Plus it smells so good on fresh shaven skin. It’s great for the dad in the family. I’ve mixed Cypress hydrosol with Rose hydrosol as its own decadent hydrosol for my skin and it almost captures the profile of Rugosa Rose; flowers, leaves and all. Cypress is a remarkable scent profile that has been hard to quit.
“The Next Aromatherapy” (Suzanne Catty) recommends blending Cypress with Juniper hydrosol for cleansing and detoxifying. Juniper is a kidney supportive in both essential oil and hydrosol form so it stands that the combination of both would be helpful in stimulating the liver and kidneys. She also notes Cypress can be helpful as a topical for arthritis and edema.
