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 has 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" . 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.
