Cypriol essential oil, or Nagarmotha, from steam distilled dried roots of Cyperus scariosus, exudes a tenacious aroma similar to Vetiver and Oud. Cypriol, known in India as Nagarmotha, works well in Oriental and Woody masculine or unisex perfumes.
An emotionally calming essential oil, Cypriol is used in aromatherapy for conditions of respiratory congestion, digestive issues, and to improve circulation. Some aromatherapy sources regard this essential oil beneficial for relieving menstrual cramps when used in a compress across the abdomen.
The earthy, leathery, slightly sweet and spicy aroma of Cypriol essential oil is calming and grounding; ideal for use in perfume, incense or to augment meditation.
