Plant Part: Wood
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
Description: Rosewood is a small evergreen tree now strictly controlled as an endangered species by the Government of
Brazil. Due to the ever increasing controls that CITES has put on the harvesting of the Aniba rosaerodora tree, the amount of legal
wood finding its way to oil distillers has significantly reduced to a point now where New Directions have been unable to source a good
affordable quality of Rosewood Oil on the international market. Therefore we now offer this natural blend which imitates the components
and scent of the real Rosewood Oil.
Color: Colorless to pale yellow liquid.
Common Uses: Rosewood had traditionally been used for its uplifting and balancing properties. The oil has been known to
help relieve symptoms of stress and headaches. It is also regarded as a general balancer to the emotions. Rosewood oil is rich in linalool,
a chemical which can be transformed into a number of derivatives of value to the flavor and fragrance industries.
Strength of Aroma: Medium
Blends well with: Cedarwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Rosemary, Mandarin, Ylang-ylang.
Aromatic Scent: Has a fantastic warm and woody scent, while at the same time being both floral and fruity.
Cautions: Avoid in pregnancy. It is a possible irritant to sensitive skin.
