Bois de Rose Oil

Oil of Rosewood   Bois de RoseAniba roseodora  Brazil  Cultivated

Our Rosewood Oil, Bois de Rose is from sustainably harvested tree plantations.
When possible we purchase Oil of Rosewood from sustainable sources  where trees are "wild cultivated". Wild cultivation, is when trees are planted in their native environment, NOT as a mono-culture, but in stands of mixed species. This method is best for the sake of the rain forest. For many years, The Essential Oil Company had chosen not to support the Rosewood essential oil industry. Harvesting practices have been extremely destructive upsetting the delicate balance in the Rain forests of Brazil. Trees have been cut for their valuable wood without regard to the environmental impact. Nurseries have now been established in Brazil to salvage endangered species of commercial value such as Rosewood, Mahogany and Pau d'arco. Our Oil of Rosewood comes from a "Wild Plantation" whenever possible.  In a wild plantation, ground cover is removed without cutting the trees. Indigenous herbs of commercial value are planted in the areas vacated by removal of non commercial species.

Bois de Rose Oil is clear to pale yellow in color.  Extracted through steam distillation from the wood that is grown in Brazil.  It has a  sweet aroma, with hints of floral notes.  Combines well with Lavender, Rose, and Bergamot oils.  

Rosewood Oil is naturally comforting, used in diffusers and potpourri and other scented household items such as candles, laundry product, and incense.  It is an anti-depressant, insecticide as well as a stimulant.  Working with the nervous system the aroma helps ease chronic fatigue and exhaustion alleviating tiredness.  This desirable scent is also used in many perfumes and colognes.
