Birch, Sweet oil, Commerical

Birch oil, Sweet a commercial grade oil is purchased as Birch oil however, it is believed by Dr. Pappas that true steam distilled Birch oil is no longer produced commercially on large scale because it is not economically feasible to compete with other products such as wintergreen oil which, in terms of chemistry, is practically identical. The low price of this so called "birch oil" would also seem to indicate the dubious nature of its authenticity.  Recently though, Dr. P has located some amazing quality Adirondack Birch oil that is produced by a family distillery on a very small scale and is the only authentic birch oil known to be on the market today (see Birch, Adirondack in the Essential Oil list).


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.
