DESCRIPTION

Unique to Australia, a dark blue somewhat viscous oil (with some similarities to chamomile blue). The blue colour comes from guaiazulene which has anti-inflammatory properties. The oil was discovered when large plantations of the trees in Darwin, originally grown for use as timber for housing, were condemned and ordered to be cut down by the local authorities. One of the workers noticed that his wound healed very quickly and soon after began distilling the oil.

Blue Cypress is believed to support the respiratory system, normal breathing.  In skin care it may be beneficial for dry skin.
