100% pure essential oil
Australian Blue Cypress Oil is distilled from the wood of Callitris intratropica, the unique Australian specie from the Northern Territory in Australia. This is a high density, beautiful cobalt blue colour essence. Blue Cypress oil has a subtle woody aroma with a warm base note and smoky undertones. This aroma makes it ideal for a variety of cosmetic and perfume products. Unlike most essential oils, Blue Cypress is a heavy oil with a density that is slightly higher than water, it does not easily evaporate.
Here are some of the numerous anecdotal evidence reports from the book “Birth of the Blue”: A woman and daughter were both affected with atopic eczema in the same upper arm area. They used soap containing .75% Blue Cypress Oil and, within five days, the eczema disappeared from both women. It has not reappeared after 15 months. . A 47-year old man with a severe burn to his left middle finger from a welding rod applied undiluted Blue Cypress Oil to the burn and continued to do so. The pain reduced within a few minutes. He finished the job, washed his hands, reapplied the oil but didn’t cover the wound -he said later that the burn healed much faster than they usually do! (C. Olsen, (2000). Birth of the Blue. Australian blue Cypress oil. Kali Press, Canada.) C. Olsen listed the properties of Blue Cypress Oil as
- Hydrating and skin softening,
- Anti-viral and anti-bacterial,
- Mild pain reliever (muscular tension & pain) …and much more (e.g. it is reported for healing of warts, it can release troubled breathing, caused by sinus infection… ) Ref: (C. Olsen, (2000). Birth of the Blue. Australian blue Cypress oil. Kali Press, Canada.)

ESSENTIAL OIL CHEMISTRY Callitris intratropica contains cuainenes, selinenes, eudesmols, and other components. Some similarities found with well-known German Blue Chamomile. The magnificent blue colour comes from guaiazulene that is strong anti-inflamatory substance.

The oil is expensive due to many reasons: the production of Blue Cypress oil is costly in comparison to other essential oils – distillation operates at low pressure and usually takes about 30 hours. The special equipment has been designed to produce the highest and most consistent quality of oil. The production of this oil is restricted during the monsoon season between November and April. In addition, the tree is harvested only from long established plantations in Northern Australia, the total area of these plantations is not very large yet, and the trees do not yield much oil.
