White Cypress essential oil is a relatively new essential oil. There are approximately 16 species of Cypress Pines in Australia, 14 of which are native.
This source of White Cypress pine essential oil is distilled from the wood, not the leaf. It has a mild yellow colour with a woody, forest-like grounding aroma. Think perfume with this one. You only need a touch to make a difference.
The White Cypress harvest is part of a regeneration project that is improving the population of the endangered Pink Wormtail Lizard.
By stripping out selected trees the forest floor has access again to sunlight critical to developing vegetation and insect species that the lizard thrives upon.
