Bois de Rose (Rosewood) - Pure Essential Oil
Bois de Rose Oil, also known as Rosewood Oil, is extracted from Aniba rosaeodora, a tropical, medium-sized evergreen that grows in the Amazon basin, which has been listed as endangered due to its overuse in perfumery. Our essential oil is renewably sourced from shavings leftover from woodcrafts.
Rosewood oil is colourless or pale yellow with a refreshing, sweet-woody, somewhat floral-spicy odour, with a camphoraceous-peppery topnote.
It is traditionally used as a mild analgesic, antidepressant, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, antibacterial, cephalic, deodorant, insecticide, and as a stimulating substance.
It blends well with cedarwood, geranium, rosemary, mandarin, ylang-ylang.
From a renewable source-- leftover shavings from wood crafts. Very rare and limited quantities available.
Characteristics: woody, floral (rosy), fresh
