100% pure essential oil of Rosewood, steam distilled from Rosewood trees sustainably harvested in Brazil. This is a wonderful Rosewood with a lovely tea-like aroma. This is an especially fine oil, one of the best we've ever experienced. Our Rosewood Oil is available from sample size up to 1 kg or more.
ABOUT THE PLANT
A moderately-tall tropical evergreen tree, the Rosewood has reddish-tinted bark and bears yellow flowers. A native species to the Amazon basin of South America, it is now predominantly cultivated in Brazil and Peruvian forests.
ABOUT THE OIL
Rosewood oil is commonly distilled from the wood chips of virgin trees naturally grown in tropical rainforests. The destruction of old-growth forests made it unethical for us to carry until a mindful and reliable source was recently found. This essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and small branches of new growth Rosewood trees naturally grown (and consistently replenished) in Brazil.
This essential oil has a bright citrus and floral top note, slightly sweet Bergamot and black tea middle notes with balsamic and slightly spiced, wooded undertones. It blends well with most essential oils but most notably: citrus, wood and floral tones. Rosewood is known for its ability to round-out and synergize aromas that might otherwise be unbalanced with 'sharp' edges.
Rosewood has been used almost exclusively for construction purposes (building, carving and cabinet making). It has only been in the last two decades that distillation for the oil has taken off as a business.
