    Details

    The Betula lenta tree has dark red bark with a sweet scent very similar to wintergreen. The tree has been used for hundreds of years - Native Americans pounded the bark and used it in poultices and warming teas. Our birch essential oil is steam-distilled from the bark of Canadian birch trees.

    • Botanical Name: Betula lenta

    • Country of Origin: Canada

    • Extraction Method: Steam distilled

    • Plant Part: Bark

    • Aromatic Scent: Birch Sweet has a sweet, sharp, camphoraceous scent that is very fresh and similar to Wintergreen.

    • Blends well with: Rosemary, Jasmine, Oregano, Sandalwood, and Cardamom

    Common Uses

    Birch is a very warming essential oil and is great to add to massage blends. Aromatically, it has a sweet, wintergreen scent. Topically, it quickly causes warming. It should always be applied with a carrier oil, even to very oily skin, as the topical application has a remarkable drying effect. Diffuse or apply in 2-5% dilution.

    Research

    Birchbark was historically used by North American native people as a tonic and beverage to bring on a sweat and to induce heating.


    Precautions

    Birch has a naturally high concentration of salicylates, which are similar to aspirin in its ability to thin the blood. It is also very sweet, which makes birch essential oil a hazard for children.

    Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Undiluted oil not intended for topical use. May irritate eyes and skin. If pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your doctor or health practitioner before use. Infant use discouraged.

    I think this may just be my favorite scent of all the essential oils. It is reminiscent of birch beer and evokes warm memories.
