NOTE: A error, made by most popular aromatherapy authors, has been assuming that the traditional use of water or alcoholic extracts can be applied to the essential oil. Water extracts contain many compounds that do not occur in the same plants essential oil. Part of the astringent action of the water based extract of cypress, is due to substances called tannins. These substances do not occur in the essential oil. Therefore be cautious about the therapeutic claims made in aromatherapy books for cypress oils.
Caution: Use with caution and only with advise of an Aromatherapist during pregnancy.
