It is also sometimes added to blends aimed at reducing cellulite. Cypress Oil is believed help offer balance to oily and congested skin.

A lovely oil to incorporate into a natural deodorant and is good for excessive perspiration (always ensure it is diluted to a maximum of 1% before skin application). Cypress is a refreshing, woody and slightly spicy in its aroma which often makes it a popular choice for the more masculine blends.
