Today, I have been mostly cutting and splitting Leyland Cypress which will be used on the log burner in two years time. Like many conifers, the essential oil is one that is good for Lung Qi. It is similar to some of the oils used in Olbas oil, a commercial mix of essential oils which have constituents added to provide a constant chemical make up. I have been enjoying the aroma as I worked. Remember, essential oils don’t just come out of bottles! Enjoy them direct from the source, be that flowers, wood, foliage or roots!
