Sweet Birch (Betula lenta) also known as Black Birch, Cherry Birch, Mahogany Birch, or Spice Birch, is a tall and graceful tree with bright green leaves and dark reddish-brown aromatic bark. It is native to southern Canada and north-eastern USA but also grows in Russia and parts of Eastern Europe.

The essential oil is steam distilled from the bark which must be macerated and soaked for up to 12 hours before distillation. The oil has a sweet, sharp, minty, fresh, camphoraceous aroma (reminiscent of Germolene).

Health Benefits: Birch oil helps to remove toxins like uric acid from the blood through increased urination and perspiration (being diuretic and stimulant in nature). In other words, this purifies the blood; a depurative is an agent that purifies something.

Used as a tonic, it gives feelings of strength, warmth and vitality. It is ideal for use in extremely cold climates.

Sweet Birch (Betula Lenta) oil is toxic and can cause skin irritations. Pregnant women should avoid birch oil due to its powerful effects that could hurt their unborn child.

Please note: Sweet Birch essential oil is a speciality oil and should always be used with caution by experienced aromatherapists only due to its potential toxic nature. This oil can however be extremely effective when used wisely.
