White Cypress Leaf Oil - Australia
White Cypress essential oil is a new player in the Australian native arena. There are approximately 16 species of Cypress Pines in Australia, 14 of which are native.
The White Cypress pine has a strong place in Indigenous Australian culture (oars, resin and medicine) and now essential oil production.
This oil is distilled from the leaf on Wiradjuri land, has a strong, fresh sweet pine aroma. It may be used in aromatherapy to ground and calm.
White Cypress pine has a high alpha-pinene component that makes it useful for antiseptic and anti-inflammatory use.
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.
Further, the spent biomass of the White Cypress Wood after steam distillation is currently being tested as a potential product to develop commercial building panels in city high rises.
Our White Cypress Oil is extracted from trees found on Wiradjuri land, Australia and has undergone extensive testing to ensure its high quality.
