Cypress is a neurotonic and energizing essential oil known to relieve depression and stimulate the mind (Schnaubelt, 230).

Cypress is an effective essential oil to use (topically) when suffering with grief and loss due to a miscarriage or stillbirth (Price, 125).

When treating hemorrhoids, aloe vera gel makes a good base for the essential oils, which can be self-administered. Spending 10 minutes in a sitz bath with essential oils (blended first in a little honey and hot water or an emulsifier [epsom salt]) is also useful, as is a compress.... Phlebotonic essential oils which help to relieve hemorrhoids and varicose veins are: neroli, lemon, grapefruit, cypress, geranium, tea tree, cajuput, niaouli, spikenard and patchouli (Price, 133).

Cypress has been shown to have an effect against MRSA (Price, 75).

As soon as possible after birth, women who have suffered perineal tears may benefit from a sitz bath containing lavender and cypress to assist healing (Price, 248).

Can also assist with incontinence. (Dilute and apply over bladder.)

Internal:

Although the quality of Selah Oils is excellent, it is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a certified physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. We recommend getting internal dosing instructions from a licensed physician as some essential oils are not recommended for oral consumption. This is in no way a reflection on our oil quality, only a matter of safety and caution with respect to how concentrated essential oils are. When used within safe parameters, and under your physician's care, the quality of our essential oils is such that they can be used internally if deemed appropriate.

However, with that said, it is important to remember the extreme concentration of essential oils. "Using essential oils by rubbing them into the skin or via inhalation is in many cases more effective than oral delivery" (Schnaubelt 96).

All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion. 

Cautions

All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion. It is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a licensed physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. 

May cause skin sensitization if oxidized. To prevent oxidation, store in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator.

If for any reason you get essential oils in your eyes, put carrier oil along the eyebrows above the eyes and on the cheekbones below the eyes.

Do not put essential oils inside your ear canal.
