The Cypress from Provence essential oil (or the evergreen Cypress) is used particularly for its expectorant properties (throat and cough problems) and is also a venal decongestant (circulation problems: varicose veins and heavy legs). It is also known to attenuate excessive perspiration and to fight bedwetting. Finally, its scent of woody overtones is a lovely invitation to unwind in all tranquility.
