Cypriol Essential Oil provides decongestive attributes and is used to treat problematic digestive problems. Cypriol comes from a plant called Indian Papyrus.

There is another cyperus oil (C. rotundus) or more commonly named nut-grass or coco-grass. Cypriol is part of a species of 600 plants growing in the tropics and subtropics.
