This beautiful oil is distilled from an evergreen tree found in the tropical rain forests of Brazil. The Brazilian essential oil output is vast and to prevent extinction of trees, the government has enacted legislation requiring distilleries to plant a new tree for each one cut down. The tree grows almost one hundred and twenty five feet and has yellow flowers.


Rosewood has only recently been introduced into Aromatherapy. The rose scented heartwood was often used to make cabinets in France as well as brush and knife handles.


Said to stabilise the central nervous system and therefore have an overall balancing effect. Helpful when feeling low, weary and over-burdened with problems – gives an uplifting, enlivening effect.


Effective in fighting viruses and valuable as an antiseptic for the throat. Acclaimed for its aphrodisiac properties and may work wonders in restoring libido and could have some effect on sexual problems such as impotence and frigidity. Its comforting and warming action may rekindle dormant sensual feelings. May help in the relief of headaches especially when accompanied by nausea – probably mitigates some of the effects of jet-lag too. Its deodorising action helps the body cope with excess heat and moisture. A valuable insect repellent.
