Native to Australia, Australian White Cypress (Callitris glaucophylla) is widespread across the drier interiors of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and the Northern Territory. It has been harvested for timber since the late 1800’s, with the first reserve set aside in NSW in 1876. A relatively new arrival in aromatherapy, this oil is incredibly soothing and grounding and has significant calming and anti-anxiety properties. Other benefits include its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used in skin care formulations and in perfumery, where it has been used as a fixative.
