Rhododendron essential oil is aromatically divine, distilled from flowers and leaves of Rhododendron anthropogon grown in the Himalayas of Nepal. This essential oil has an exotic floral aroma with lingering sweet fruity notes. When initially sampling this oil it was love at first whiff!

An interesting spiritual fact is that the dried leaves of Rhododendron anthopogon are crushed by Buddhist monks, mixed with ghee, and made into sacred incense for their monasteries and others throughout SE Asia. I fondly recall visiting a monastery in Laos a few years back having the most wondrous and unique aroma coming from large urns of burning incense. That aroma has remained forefront in my mind, and one I dare say closely resembles this essential oil.

This is a wonderful calming oil for meditation or chanting to help make spiritual connections by opening the mind and heart to a free flow of positive energy through its grounding, calming, and centering properties.

Rhododendron anthopogon has also received recognition in medical research with some rather amazing results. The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Padova, Italy documented"a significant killing effect against some Gram-positive reference strains: Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcusfecalis, Bacillus subtilis was measured; Mycobacterium tuberculosis reference strain and a clinical isolate of Candida, C. pseudotropicalis were killed by as low as 0.04% (v/v) essential oil. Moreover, the oil was able to reduce cancer cell growth independently of the cell line and the treatment protocols used."

Very Nice Indeed
Lotus Garden Botanicals' Rhododendron essential oil is my first encounter with this Floral Note and a very nice encounter indeed! Floral, sweet, perfumery and with a bit of warmth to it; lovely.

excellent topically against staph
Because the description mentioned studies of its efficacy against Staphylococcus aureus, I ordered it to try on an infection of an unknown type of staph which took hold on the back of my hand more than 2 years ago when I was exposed doing some volunteer work. I've spent almost $1K fighting it, and ran out of this Rhododendron athopogon before it could fully eradicate it, but it worked better than anything else I've tried, which is saying a lot, plus no side effects, and it smells lovely, a sort of a menthol-berry tea tree without the harsh edge plus a bit of Himalayan floral sweetness.

Unique and Devine
This was one of the oils in my first purchase from LGB, and it was the one I was most excited to experience. It was because LGB had this oil, that I even considered placing an order to begin with. I had no idea what to expect from this oil aromatically. I didn't know that an EO for rhododendron even existed until 2 months ago. I lived in WA state near Seattle for a couple of years where they flourish and was unaware that they were aromatic. Anyway, This oil is AMAZING! You can't beat the price, either. Definitely give it a try.
