Rosewood oil is steam distilled from the wood of the tree. This tree grows in Brazil and is mostly used commercially for the wood! It is unique oil that can be hard to find in therapeutic quality.
Because of Rosewood brings emotional stability and empowerment, it is found in many professionally made blends that I use.
I designed this section on Rosewood Oil so you could use it as a fun and easy reference guide. It will tell you how to use your oil and what to use it for. It will also provide you with some fun tips, testimonials and oil trivia!
As I receive new tips and testimonials they will be added to the page, so check back often!
Because of the limited supply of rosewood and the deforestation, rosewood is no longer available as a single oil.
What is the Genus Species? Aniba rosaeodora
Why is this information important? It is always a good idea to know your source and the genus species of your essential oil, so you know what you are getting!
For instance, rosewood oil is often times adulterated with Palmarosa essential oil. Too many companies label essential oils generically which means none of us know what they are putting in the oils they sell to us. So always purchase your oil by the common name and the genus species name.
Where is the name derived from? I couldn't find information on exactly where rosewood got its name. But I am assuming that it is because many believe that the oil smells like a rose!
Why is this information so important? It's not, it's just a fun fact!
What Part of the Plant is Used? Wood
What is the ORAC Value? 113,200 µTE/100g

It is said that Rosewood creates peace and security. But I believe it goes deeper than that. In Deborah Eidson's book, she says it "Opens the inner ear and compassion". When the inner ear opens, our creativity peaks and expands all the chakras in the body, but specifically the heart chakra. This is very powerful.
The heart chakra holds the emotions of grief and sadness. This is why this oil has been associated with alleviating. And mixed with other oils can be very effective for releasing abusive memories.
