essential oil is used in aromatherapy for its calming and regenerative
benefits as a healing essential oil. Rosewood essential oil is extracted
from the the Brazilian rosewood tree, Aniba rosaeaodora.
Recently, legislation has been put in place to protect the rosewood
requiring distilleries to plant a new tree when one is cut down.
oil has a sweet, spicy, woody, and somewhat floral fragrance. It is one
of the best healing essential oils for depression as well as being an
ideal skin care essential oil. Rosewood oil is an ideal skin care
essential oil because of its ability to stimulate cell and tissue
regeneration. It helps to balance dull, dry, and oily skin, specifically
benefiting mature, wrinkled skin. It is an anti-depressant,
aphrodisiac, stimulant, cephalic, antiseptic, and mildly analgesic
essential oil. However, like all essential oils, rosewood oil is highly
concentrated and should never be applied directly to the skin, but
always diluted in a carrier oil (Neuderm Unscented Oil).
