Application Suggestions (see Essential Oil Usage):
Topical: Dilute and apply on area of concern, bottoms of feet or as desired. 

Inhalation: Diffuse (undiluted)

Internal: Cypress is suitable for internal use within safe parameters. We feel that internal use is rarely *needed* and should only be used with respect for how concentrated the oils are. Schnaubelt notes that the preferred mode of use is internal and topical. Click here for information about internal usage.

1. My 7-year-old son has always wet the bed. I started rubbing Cypress on his belly before bedtime, and after 1 week of doing that the bed wetting stopped. We've enjoyed using the oils for different things. - C.M.

2. We have seen great success with by rubbing Cypress oil over the bladder area at night for our son who is a chronic bedwetter! I chose the Cypress because I had come across a few testimonies that it had worked for other children. Thought we might as well give it a try, and sure enough, it does work!!!

3. I tried Cypress on my 7-year-old son who was still wetting the bed, 6 days later he stopped! Praise the Lord. Thank you :) - Daniel J.

Cypress has been reported to be non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing.
Avoid eye contact. In case of accidental contact, put a few drops of any pure vegetable oil in the eye. Water will not adequately dilute the oil. We’ve never known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your doctor if necessary.
