About Our Organic Rosewood Essential Oil

Sustainably harvested Rosewood essential oils has been a long sought after gem in Aromatherapy. It has incomparable therapeutic qualities and a uniquely gentle, almost divine fragrance. For many decades we have not offered Aniba rosaedora because we could not find a trustworthy source for this endangered species. 

We are thrilled to be able to offer two kinds of Rosewood oil from the same source now, an organic and a traditional distillate. Our revered friend and Aromatherapy giant Pierre Franchomme has offered us access to these two precious oils and we want to share our excitement.

Therapeutic Properties

In the 1980s and 1990s Rosewood essential has been the number one oil for pulmonary, ear, nose and throat infections. It is is highly recommended by Dr. Daniel Penoel and Pierre Franchomme for infections in babies, children, frail and immune compromised persons. 

Due to its exceptional character of combining absolute gentleness with powerful antiviral potency it is equally appropriate for conditions that require a pain free approach of healing such as vaginitis, genital infections and many more. 

Other indications would be cystitis, bacterial, viral and fungal infections as well as asthenia and depression, burnout and exhaustion and stimulating intestinal peristalsis.

The Site: Brasil

According to  the great STEFFEN Arctander (Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origins) Rosewood oil, also know as Bois de Rose oil - was among the 15 most abundantly produced essential oils in the post WW2 period. Accordingly the annual production in Brazil alone was 500 - 600 metric tons per year. This was also reflected in its low price on the world market. The intense harvesting of the trees led to a situation where the trees became increasingly scarce und retreated to the remote corners of the Amazonia jungle.

In the early 2000s programs to protect the ecosystems of the Amazon some enterprising communities in Amazonia Brazil embarked on programs of replanting Rosewood trees and distilling the oil from the leaves rather than the wood of felled trees. The oil we have the privilege to offer is from such cultivations, sustainably produced from the wood cultivated trees in compliance with CITES regulations.
