Blue Cypress (Callitris intratropica)


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The Australian Blue Cypress pine is a long-lived tree, often growing for upwards of 200 years.

Native to the top end of Australia, the blue cypress pine was very popular as a construction timber in the 1960s thanks to its termite resistant properties.

Many plantations were established in this time, however following Cyclone Tracy in 1974, new building regulation discouraging the construction of timber framed houses saw many of the plantations decommissioned.

In the mid 90s, the rising popularity of essential oils saw the remaining plantations re-purposed for essential oil producers.

Blue cypress oil has a beautifully smooth, blue-green appearance. Tiny crystals may form when the oil is cool but will disappear again once gently warmed.

Rich in sesquiterpenes, including guaiazulene, blue cypress oil is known for it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and some anti-viral properties.

It has also proven to be effective at improving circulation, assisting in the relief of muscle aches and pains.

As an essential oil its fresh, woody scent it is very calming, ideal for creating a soothing, grounded atmosphere. This scent blends well with citrus notes such as lemon, lime and wild orange. As well as other essential oils like sandalwood, lavender and bergamot.

Blue cypress oil can be used as an essential oil, as well as in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
