Distilled deep in the Peruvian Amazon, our Moena Essential Oil is an intriguing and rare find. This essential oil, which has similar medicinal benefits to Brazilian Rosewood, is distilled from trees that are part of a reforestation project in Madre de Dios. This project has had an immensely healing impact on the local rainforest and it is now more profitable to plant trees than it is to cut them down.
Known by the Peruvian people as Moena Alcanforada or “camphorated moena,” this rare essential oil is used for its cooling, soothing and incredible anti-inflammatory properties. Add a couple drops of Moena to the bath for a soothing effect. Moena works wonders in the diffuser or inhaled through our salt inhalers.
This one of a kind essential oil is currently the only one on earth distilled from this particular species of Moena tree, making this oil not just a new addition to medical-aromatherapy, but incredibly rare and precious. The conscious cultivation of Moena trees in Madre de Dios has been miraculously beneficial for the local economy and ecology. A single bottle of Moena Essential oil supports a healthy environment and ecosystem, preserves the rainforest in Peru, and gives locals a sustainable way to earn money.
