The betula lenta tree has dark red bark with a sweet scent very similar to wintergreen. The tree has been used for hundreds of years - Native Americans pounded the bark and used it in poultices and warming teas. Our birch essential oil is steam-distilled from the bark of Canadian birch trees.
Birch is a very warming essential oil, and is great to add to massage blends. Aromatically, it has a sweet, wintergreen scent. Topically, it quickly causes warming. It should always be applied with a carrier oil, even to very oily skin, as topical application has a remarkable drying effect. Diffuse or apply in 2-5% dilution.
Birch Sweet has a sweet, sharp, camphoraceous scent that is very fresh and similar to Wintergreen.
Birch has a naturally high concentration of salicylates, which are similar to aspirin in their ability to thin blood. It is also very sweet, which makes birch essential oil a hazard for children. Keep out of reach of children and always use in dilution. Avoid use during pregnancy.

Essential oils do not cure cancer. Essential oils do not cure Ebola or the flu. In fact, with few exceptions, essential oils are regulated by the US FDA as cosmetics and can make claims only about beauty and natural appearance. All other claims in marketing, labeling, and other materials are illegal. We strictly adhere to US FDA guidelines, along with supporting the international essential oil community."
