Product Abstract: The Callitris intratropica botanical is a slow-growing tree native to Australia. This compact tree with blue-green foliage reaches heights of 75 feet, and its branches can spread out to 30 feet at the base. For thousands of years, the Australian aboriginal Tiwi people used it for medicinal purposes. It is now grown in plantations, being valued for its fragrant wood. Among aromatherapists and manufacturers, this oil is considered similar to German (Blue) Chamomile.
In temperatures below 20°C, this essential oil can solidify or have a thick consistency. We recommend placing the bottle in a bowl of very hot water and ensuring that the water remains hot until this essential oi returns to the liquid state. Shake well before use.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: Doesn’t have a pine, evergreen scent to it, or even smell woody smell to me. Very fresh, and clean smell. Just made another order.
It is pretty thick and takes forever to drop. Letting sit in warm water for 5 minutes, or Pipette is recommended if your going to be using more than a drop or two.
Definitely a must try.
Rating: I use this cypress in serum blends to support skin and hair health, and also for aromatic blends for grounding and meditation. I like the spicy-foresty notes, and it is pleasing to both masculine and female sensibilities. One of my favorites!

Rating: This oil is a deep blue complex woodsy scent that grows on me the more I use it. It imparts a well rounded woody depth with fruity notes of sweetness to perfumes and the deep blue color is enchanting. Blends well with florals for grounding and serenity. More subtle and less overt than most conifers but well worth it for it's uniqueness.

Rating: This oil is amazingly fragrant. Soft and sweet and so soothing. I like it even more than the many chamomiles I've used in the past. The scent really develops out of the bottle and a few drops go a very long way. I have used it on a nasty bruise and it's fading and helps ease the discomfort. Thanks NDA

Rating: I love this oil. It smells intoxicating to me. The blue color gives it such an edge.. haha, but I use it for the backs of my thighs to smooth them out. It works wonders combined with other oils. I will definitely be purchasing again, despite its price!

Rating: I love the smell of this oil. It hasn't done much for pain but has smoothed out cellulite on the back of my legs. It is also helpful for movement meditations/yoga. I've read that it helps connect to the subtle body, and I'd have to agree; it's true in my experience.

Rating: I love this oil. I've used it diluted in a carrier oil on my neck and foot for pain. The pain is gone so quickly. The pain is gone so quickly. I also really like the smell of this oil. I'm glad I found it and will buy it again/.

Rating: My husband's neck muscles are stiff and aching so I've been massaging his neck with different essential oils. This one is the only one that relieved the pain and stiffness. I have now mixed up an entire bottle with the "blue oil" for him. This oil is a little pricier than other oil but is totally worth the investment. The scent is very pleasant also.
Rating: I have used my blue cypress in a few ways. I use it in blends for bath water and lotions. I have also used it in blends to freshen my house. I have gotten several comments from friends from the unique scent. I have a bottle on my tub ledge ready for times I just need an extra push for a calming bath. It does the trick every time.
Rating: I like to use Cypress Australian Blue in an aroma lamp by my bed, it's relaxing.

Rating: I have been consistently using this blue cypress with german chamomile and carrot seed in glacial clay as a mask. The changes in my skin are amazing. The discolorations are gone and my skin feels soft and toned. These quality essential oils are outstanding.
