Australian Blue Cypress Oil
The Australian Continent is filled with mysterious and beautiful examples of nature’s magnificent design at its best. Stories filled with mystique and ancient people have fascinated us for many decades. The Original people have not only survived their harsh outback-living elements but also for thousands of years have thrived by preparing numerous natural plant remedies and foods. Preparaton and use of essentail oil bearing plants is a major part of the aboriginal pharmacopoeia.
The indigenous inhabitants of Bathurst and Melville Islands, off the coast of the Northern Territory are the Tiwi people. They have used Northern Pine in various ways. What is known is that they used the bark of the tree as a medication for relief of diarrhea and post-natal bleeding. Bark and leaves helped to repel bugs, and the ashes were used for easing aches and pains.
The oil is now being steam distilled and sold to companies worldwide; the products range from sports to cosmetics and perfumery.
