All About White Cypress & Nerolina

For the month of June, we are introducing two refreshing and uplifting Australian oils to help support overall mind and body wellness.                                                       

Our White Cypress & Nerolina oils are an Oil of the Month offering throughout the month of June. Check back with us soon to see if we have added it to our collection.

White Cypress Essential Oil

Crisp and refreshing, the delightfully bright aroma of White Cypress Essential Oil is undoubtedly an Australian treasure. Growing native on the coastline, the Callitris columellaris is a coniferous tree in the Cupressaceae family and provides many of the same benefits as others in this family, like Cypress and Juniper. White Cypress can support a healthy respiratory system due to its high a-pinene content, making it great to reach for to help with seasonal discomfort. It is also uniquely high in limonene for a conifer oil, adding a distinct cheerful note to the overall scent profile. Try White Cypress in your diffuser to help ward off stale scents and create a fresh and clean environment. Topically, it may help support keeping skin healthy and balanced.

Nerolina Essential Oil

A native Australian chemotype of Niaouli, Nerolina Essential Oil has a similar herbaceous freshness, but also presents soft, floral notes due to its high linalool content (more than 46%!). Nerolina is also rich in nerolidol, a sesquiterpene found in precious floral oils like Neroli and Jasmine, which adds sweet nuances not commonly found throughout the Melaleuca plant family. Its unique, woodsy, floral aroma helps soothe and calm the nervous system, making this oil an excellent companion on stressful days or whenever you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed. For a relaxing and restorative bath, add 25 drops to an ounce of carrier oil and a cup of Epsom salt; then sit back, relax, and enjoy Nerolina’s positive influence on the mind and body.

  • Can you give some info about safety uses, such as: KidSafe, Pup & Pony safe, pregnancy safe, nursing safe? This is helpful in deciding on whether or not I/we can use in my/our household.

  • Can Nerolina be used like Tea Tree oil to support a clear complexion? What do you recommend? I like the description of its calming qualities and fragrance profile.

    1. It has some properties of Melaleuca, but it may not work like Tea Tree, 1% dilution for the face. You can definitely give it a try and see how it goes for the first week. It may help with the complexion and with calming the mind.
