Our Rosewood comes from sustainable sources. Rosewood is an endangered species, and Rosewood oil cannot be sold without a special certificate from the Brazilian Government to confirm that it comes from sustainable sources. This is called a CITES certificate, and our Rosewood carries this certificate.
Rosewood has a soft, woody, rose-like scent that balances and enhances most essential oil blends. It is useful for colds, flu, and coughs, and is gentle enough for children and the elderly. This versatile essential oil is antibacterial, and antifungal. Its gentle, regenerative action benefits all skin types, and is useful for scars and wrinkles. Rosewood helps relieve jetlag, and has uplifting, strengthening qualities. It supports and promotes courage during stressful times.
This is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil produced using wild-crafted plants and traditional methods from Peru, and is obtained from the wood of the tree.
Please note: This product is CITES approved, which indicates that it is from a species which is generally considered to be endangered, but which in this case has been specially registered as having being produced sustainably. For this reason it is only available for purchase and shipping within the UK.
