Himalayan Cypress or Bhutan Cypress, this unique essential oil is distilled from aromatic heartwood wildcrafted in Nepal from Cupressus torulosa trees. Himalayan Cypress trees reach for the sky growing to a height of 145-150 feet in the high altitude rocky terrain of the Himalayan Mountains. It stands to reason why a ground disrupting natural disaster of great magnitude in April 2015 presented the opportunity for Nepalese distillers to explore distillation of aromatic heartwood from naturally fallen Himalayan Cypress trees. We gladly support their efforts and are happy to make this exceptional oil available to you.
