The refreshing scent of cypress gives you the impression of being in the heart of a forest. Cypress wood is a raw material that is easy to process, to store and is known for its durability.
lt has been used since ancient times for the construction of shrines and temples in Japan. Its durability is owed in part to the terpenes contained in the wood and that which gives the Cypress its woody scent.
ln fact, terpenes act as antibacterial agents and insect repellent and without them there would be vermin eating away at the temples. Terpenes are also used to soothe and relax, much like the feeling of taking in fresh forest air.
This oil soothes the mind and body enabling you to reach a greater degree of serenity.
