Cypress Leaf Essential Oil Energetic Properties

Cypress Leaf Aromatherapy Oil is very supportive, and grounding. It confers a balancing influence, inviting us to abandon extremes and return to the middle path.

As well as helping to restore us physically to a state of normal function, it also guides us towards a more healthy outlook psychologically. It clears the way for us to work more intuitively rather than over-rationalising things, and ultimately catastrophising. It allows for a clearer, and healthy perspective on things.

It effectively purifies us of unhelpful extremes and exaggerations, restoring a much-needed clarity of mind. And, in doing so, it raises our spirits, and uplifts our heart, opening us up to new levels of experience and expression.

Ultimately, it guides us towards coming at life from a loving perspective, where judgement, jealousies, guilt and a sense of separateness have no place. In our appreciation of oneness, unconditional love can prevail.
