This light nonviscous, clear oil is steam distilled from the wood of the tree.
We cannot source 100% genuine oil from Brazil these days and so have had a blended oil done. It meets the aromatherapy standard. The oil is a mix of South American and Asian at the moment. None of it is coming out tof the Amazon.
It is becoming harder to source as more and more regulatory regimes ( it is already covered by the CITES covenant) are introduced to ensure its harvesting at a sustainable rate, and therefore its survival.
As far as we know there is no more wild cultivation of Rosewood allowed anywhere.
It has a middle note. Sweet, woody with rose undertones not overly odourous.It is beaut in any sort of skin preparation that you can think of.
