BHUTAN CYPRESS Essential Oil | Wildcrafted
Our Bhutan Cypress Essential Oil is distilled from Cypress leaves and branches hand harvested from trees that soar up to 150 feet into the sky. The pristine environment in Bhutan endows this refreshing elixir with potent aromatherapeutic qualities. Cypress Essential Oil deepens and expands the breath and is very beneficial to use in your diffuser or formulations in times of stress, loss of sleep or hormonal challenges. It offers a wide range of applications when its astringent properties are called for.
Cypress has been traditionally used to beautify the skin and scalp. The astringent nature of this oil is very helpful for summertime skin, or whenever there are oily, teenage/troubled or sweaty conditions. You can also routinely count on cypress to keep your home fresh and clean when added to your household cleansers.
For the mind, cypress is known to have a refreshing, cleansing effect which can dispel worry and stress. Diffused, invigorating cypress oil will clear the air whenever it has been left heavy or stagnant. Cypress is a useful essential oil for promoting concentration and productivity. This Bhutan Cypress’ aromatic profile lends itself to soothing hormonal imbalances and promoting deep, restful sleep.

How to Store
Cupressus torulosa, Bhutan Cypress or Himalayan Cypress, is the National Tree of Bhutan. Locally, it is known as ‘Tsenden’. The Bhutanese people consider the cypress sacred and they have great reverence for this majestic tree. The people of Bhutan compare its ability to survive in difficult, rugged and harsh terrains and the strong and straight form of the tree to their own simplicity, hardiness and bravery.
Eco-Projects in Bhutan
Bhutan is known for its monasteries, fortresses, and dramatic landscapes — from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In 2013, the government announced its plan for Bhutan to become the first country in the world with 100 percent organic farming. Bhutanese red rice is the country's most popular known agricultural export, along with Bhutanese apples and oranges. And now, this Buddhist kingdom on the eastern edge of the Himalayan mountains is home to a brand new distilling operation.
Eco-Projects in Bhutan
We’re honored to partner with this trailblazing ethical distiller, Karma, as he brings fresh, economic opportunities to Bhutan’s local communities. Karma pays fair and equitable wages to the harvesters, who hand-pick Jatamansi roots and prune Juniper branches from remote Himalayan mountains and valleys. As part of the price that Karma pays for the plant material, he pays into a community forest fund. This fund is used by the community for micro loans to the local people. This is on top of the fair prices that he pays to the harvesters.
