Guaiacwood Essential Oil is adored by natural perfumers as a deep, vivacious base note reminiscent of benzoin. It is vanilla like with the subtle creamy smokiness of toffee and soft rosy undertone. For this reason, guaiac wood is often turned to for sophisticated campfire and incense accords. A carmelized woody floral aroma and efficient fixative appreciated by soap and candle makers and more. Our Guaiacwood Essential Oil is steam distilled in Paraguay from wildcrafted heartwood producing semi-solid essential oil that does require warming to become mobile. Once warmed, the liquid Guaiacwood Oil will remain mobile for a few hours and it can be completely dispersed into oil or alcohol to use again without reheating.
In addition to its rich pleasing aroma, Guaiacwood is a very healing oil used by aromatherapists to enhance the immune system. Guaiacwood Essential Oil has antioxidants that scavenge free radicals, stimulates lymphatic flow and supports respiratory health. Topically, this oil can be used for anti-inflammatory benefits and to tighten the skin for a natural glow. Guaiacwood is known as a stress reducer and beneficial for meditation and grounding.
