Did you know that INCONTINENCE is the  leading cause of nursing home placement for women?
I was talking to a friend who shared that with me and I was surprised to hear that.  A book called The Bathroom Key by Kathryn Kassai is described as “a treatment plan for women to cure their own incontinence issues. It also allows women to identify with other women through the anecdotal stories that echo their feelings of isolation and embarrassment and guides the reader to a better understanding of her body and effective remedies.”

On an Essential Oil Blog I saw this:  “I just gave a bottle to my grandma for bed wetting and bladder issues. She has used it for 3 days and is in LOVE. She only wakes up once in the night instead of 3-4 times. She was close to wearing Depends and now feels like she will not need to go that way.” -Callie Chinen

 

Derived from the branches of the tall evergreen tree, Cypress essential oil has a fresh, clean aroma that’s energizing and refreshing. Cypress is frequently used in spas and by massage therapists for its ability to soothe tight, tense muscles, and promote circulation. Cypress can be diffused or inhaled directly to assist with clear breathing and healthy respiratory function. It can be used as a throat gargle for theme same benefits, but should not be swallowed or taken internally. Cypress contains monoterpenes, making it beneficial for oils skin conditions and to stimulate localized blood flow. It has a grounding, yet stimulating effect on emotions, making it a popular oil to diffuse during times of transition or loss.

The following information comes from Dr. Susan Lawson
Cypress
Cupressus sempervirens
 
The Cypress (cupressaceae family) is a conifer that is found all over the world. The variety used for essential oils commonly comes from southern Europe. The essential oil is extracted from the cones and leaves of the tree. The most ancient living Cypress is located in Abarkooh, near Shiraz. Its age is estimated to be approximately 4000 years. dōTERRA Cypress interestingly comes from the Isle of Crete. It is steam distilled from the needles, twigs and cones (about 30 pounds will yield 1 pound of oil) of the tree. Sometimes the oil is used in men’s colognes and aftershaves. Cypress Oil is clear, and has a woody, nutty quality with a hint of spice.
 
Because Cypress is such a strong astringent, in much of the literature it is recommended for concerns that take advantage of this property. This includes items such as skin care, hemorrhoids, varicose veins and excess perspiration or undesirable odor of the feet. Cypress is often recommended for hemorrhoids using a wash, sitz bath, or direct application with or without a carrier. The same ointment can be used for varicose veins applied topically lightly to the area (no massage) with light strokes toward the heart. Cypress is a gentle diuretic. Some mention Cypress benefiting the symptoms of asthma when diffused properly. It is useful for all bronchial complaints and lung diseases like Tuberculosis, Whooping Cough and Pleurisy (use with Myrrh and Wild Orange).
 
All Recommendations or Suggestions are effective only with doTerra CPTG Oils
 
Studies have been made for internal treatment of whooping cough, the spitting up of blood, spasmodic coughs, colds, flu and sore throats. Studies have also explored cypress’ effectiveness as an astringent to aid varicose veins, hemorrhoids and tightening up the blood vessels. A University in Japan studied cypress foot baths to counter excessive sweating. Improves circulation and strengthens blood capillaries; anti-infectious, anti-rheumatic, astringent, calmative, deodorant, Prostatic decongestant, antispasmodic, discourages fluid retention; creates an atmosphere within the head (neurotonic) to reduce plaque on the brain and the hearing nerves.  Due to it’s nature of improving circulatory system Cypress is great for supporting quality of life for diabetes, phlebitis and lymphatic system issues. Cypress is great for relieving acne, skin rashes, and rheumatic pain. Cypress has a special relationship with circulation in the lower abdomen for bladder health and female monthly discomfort and decongesting the Prostate. Cypress works well with muscle and tissue repair oils for rapid recovery after injury or surgical repair. Cypress can increase mental energy and attentiveness by reducing drowsiness and irritability. A drop of the essential oil on your pillow or diffused will lessen laryngitis, spasmodic coughing, relieve sinus congestion. (Some clients who have had their Gall Bladders removed report that Cypress is a great sedative if applied to the inside of the forearms or on the chest. Sleep happens fast, no idea why – just reporting results). Valnet suggested Cypress was an extraordinary oil to discourage cancer growth because of its’ ability to help cells remember the value of fluid balance and oxygen processing. Cypress can be used as a safe insect repellant for dogs against fleas and ticks (spritz along back of head and along the back before a run in the woods or apply on the skin between the fir strands-diluted 1:1). Works on people if spritz on legs and arms too.
 
Cypress’ (Emotional) Therapeutic Properties
 
The sour, astringent, and woody notes of the essence convey a feeling of cohesion and stability. At the same time, its fresh, coniferous (tall pine tree) pungency, and ability to circulate the Qi and blood, both relate it to both psychological transition and real-life change. Cypress oil’s basic subtle action is to help us cope with and accept even difficult change—of both an inner and outer nature.  Encourages the process of ―taking in and letting go;‖ of the ability to accept and relinquish, dissolving remorse and instilling optimism, Cypress oil helps us to flow with the flux of life (getting unstuck).
 
Cypress diffused and applied on the vita flex points for the chest, can be a great support through the grieving process to allow suppressed, obstructive feelings to emerge to consciousness, liberating the energy that we spend in keeping them locked within. Self doubt can be relieved about possibilities for achieving personal happiness, encouraging the processing of old habits and patterns no longer necessary to get thru stressful situations.
