My favorite uses:
Cypress is the oil of emotion & flow. I love this oil because it creates fluidity for any stagnant energies surrounding us. This oil also aids in teaching the soul how to let go of the past by moving with the flow of life. If you’re experiencing the feeling of being stuck, stiff, rigid, or tense .. even if you have perfectionist tendencies, THIS oil is perfect for you!!!
If you’re a worrier, Cypress encourages you to case aside your worries and let go of CONTROL so you can enjoy the thrill that comes from being alive!!!!
As a mom of two, I use this blend a lot for helping with bladder control… both for my postpartum body and for my kids so they can have better bladder control at night (hooray for no more wetting the bed!)
