Adam Michael has this to say “The Callitris genus belongs to the cupressaceae family and includes about a dozen species that grow in the southern hemisphere, chiefly in Australia, and notably in the aboriginal lands such as the Melville Islands. The aroma of blue cypress essential oil is very rich with top notes that are smooth and woody, comparable to the suave woody body of pemou and the soft floral seductive aspects of ylang ylang. This is followed with a floral and earthy infusion, comparable to blue chamomile entwined with helichrysum angustifoliam. Finally I detect very delicate undertones of fruity fig and acacia honey sweetness and all of great tenacity.
Hermitage blue cypress is produced by steam distilling the heartwood of Callitris intratropica, of a pourable viscosity and contains guaiazulene and chamazulene, both responsible for the ink blue colour of this material. Other key constituents of blue cypress are guaiol, beta eudesmol, alpha eudesmol, gamma eudesmol, dihydrocolumellarin and of columellarin which as a collective account for over 50% of the oil.
Therapeutically and based upon the chemistry this material has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. This material is useful for taking the pain out of insect bites and skin rashes.”
Botanical Name: Callitris intratropica

Outstanding colour, very special as blue is a rare colour in nature outside of the sky and the ocean. Hard to describe scent wise, I find it very masculine, its dry and edgy and blends so easily in modern colognes type fragrances. It’s also fresh and vibrant in an unexpected way and begs for a thirsty sip of citrus. I’m a big fan of this cool blue cypress already!

It’s a persistent sweet woody magic in a bottle. It’s like a relaxed walk in Mediterranean woods after a rainy afternoon.
When you open a bottle a balsamic note fills your lungs and you want to breathe deeply more and more – this is an emotional side of this essential oil for me.
As long as it regards notes i can perceive – it starts with jade wood, cabreuva, to reveal a little later some blue camomile, cedar wood atlas, earthy vetiver and following its dry down hints of velvety citrus.
It is sweet, fruity, resinous and coniferous – one of my favorite wood ever.
Uses in aromatherapy are very useful as well as long as it is antibacterial, highly anti-inflammatory and antibacterial plus has anti-allergenic properties that relieve itching, rashes, and dermatitis and anti viral as well. Heals wounds relieves insects bites and is an excellent oil for meditation because it evokes a sense of calm and is grounding while increasing focus and metal clarity.
Go go go for it 😉

Beautiful light azure blue. Outstanding healing material, I use it for varicose veins serum.
Somehow it reminds me of one of my favorite materials from Hermitage, that is sadly not available anymore – South African Yarrow. It has a piercing and penetrating aroma that is very refreshing and grounding

This blue cyprus is a real aristocrat. This one doesn’t just let someone in because he knows who he is. If you think it is easy to find a partner for him, you are wrong. He chooses very well who will stand by him. He knows his own price and quality. He knows about his woody depth, about his delicious peace and about his wonderful honey sweetness. Don’t offend him if you think you can mix him with anything. You can’t. He won’t let you. If you don’t listen to him, it will take offense and its only drop will ruin your whole recipe. A real king who will teach you how to treat the monarch.
