We are delighted to have sourced from Canada true Birch Sweet essential oil. True birch oil is expensive compared to commercial quality often found in the marketplace today. According to the distiller true Birch oil is costly "because the bark has to be macerated and soaked in warm water for 10-12 hours minimum before it can be distilled. The yield is very low and the oil is more difficult technically to collect from the distillation because it's more dense than water and so the oil layer sinks to the bottom of the collection apparatus instead of floating on top like most essential oils."

Birch Sweet essential oil can be  extremely effective in creams and massage oils for sprains, strains, sore aching muscles and painful joints. Sweet Birch has anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties seen useful with arthritis and rheumatism.

Aromatherapy use: inflammation, rheumatism, hypertension, muscle aches and strains, edema

General use: Oil diffusers, potpourri, blending massage oil, perfume, bath oil, bath salt, bath and shower gels, spa treatment oils and creams, soap making, candle making

Contraindications: Use sparingly. Can be toxic if overused because of high (99.62%) methyl salicylate content (the active ingredient in aspirin). Not recommended for those with liver problems, on blood thinning medication, children or the elderly. Avoid while pregnant or breastfeeding. Considered a skin irritant unless well diluted.

frosted-sugar squeal of delight!
I can see why birch was a main ingredient in original root beer formulations! It is cleanly sweet and astonishingly intense with a kinetically enthused frosted-sugar frission, brisk but brightly shimmering, not sharp or bracing. Quite inviting and exciting! Pairs beautifully with so many others: cardamom, vanilla, mint, lavender, orange… Delightful!
