Birch Oil, Adirondack 

Believed to be the only authentic birch oil produced on the market today.  Quite a bit more complex than the typical commercial "birch oil" on the market.  The quality of this oil is quite amazing.  True birch oil is expensive 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 its 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.

Actions:  Birch is analgesic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, a liver stimulant, and it supports bone functions.


Traditional Uses:  The American Indians and early European settlers flavored their tea with birch bark.  Birch's main constituent, methyl salicylate, is also found in willow trees and is similar to the salicylic acid used in aspirin.


Indications:  Arthritis, rheumatism, inflammation, muscular pain, tendonitis, hypertension, and cramps.  Birch and wintergreen essential oil contain an active principle similar to cortisone that is beneficial for bone, muscle and joint discomfort.


Other Uses:  Birch essential oil may be helpful for cystitis acne, bladder infection, gout, gallstones, edema, eczema, skin diseases, ulcers, and urinary tract disorders.


Application:  Birch is safest to apply after diluting with a massage or vegetable oil.  It also may be applied neat (undiluted) to the bottom of the feet.  For baths, add 3-5 drops to bath water with 1/2 oz. of a bath or shower gel.


Fragrant Influence:  Birch stimulates and increases awareness in all levels of the sensory system.


Safety Data:  If pregnant or under a doctor's care consult your physician.  Do not use if epileptic.  Skin test for allergies.


Companion Oils:  Wintergreen, basil, cypress, geranium, juniper, lavender, lemongrass, marjoram, peppermint, and Roman chamomile.
