Rosewood, one of the most expensive wood species, provides not only a unique raw material for furniture and art, but also a unique essential oil, which conquers with a combination of amazing healing properties with absolute non-aggressiveness and the absence of skin-irritating properties.
The tonic and antiseptic properties of the unique rosewood are fully appreciated in Peru, Brazil and French Guinea, which today are the main supplier countries. And even if the name of this essential oil is misleading, and some even catch a rose in its aroma, the unique rose tree is one of the most popular woody aroma oils, whose low and very complex aroma seems magical and is actively used not only in cosmetology, but also in perfumery industry.
Essential oil from a unique type of wood is obtained only by pre-treating wood chips using the steam method. As a result of distillation, aroma oil gets an absolutely colorless and very light texture, sometimes with a yellowish sheen visible in the light. The most expensive and valuable aroma oil of Guinea origin, derived from cayenne rosewood.
Check the country of origin of the oil, because for the oil from other countries you should not overpay: cayenne oil is very difficult to get, it is produced in limited editions, not competing with the mass Brazilian production.
The aroma of rosewood is very complex, it consists of several essentials and is not immediately revealed. By itself, it looks like expensive perfumes that offer to enjoy sweet, woody, floral and spicy notes one after another. Rosewood belongs to the strongest erogenous aromas.
Impact on the emotional sphere
The low, complex and “solid” aroma of rosewood seems to be created by nature to restore mental and emotional balance. This is not just a relaxing and anti-depressant oil: it helps to achieve inner harmony, remove psychological prohibitions and barriers, and contributes to self-improvement and development.
It is considered one of the best essential oils for making complex decisions, for clear thinking in complex tasks and challenges (for example, exams or work that requires concentration). It is the ideal ethereal basis for a constructive way out of stress and depression, getting rid of negativism and pessimism. The aroma of rosewood helps relieve irritation, anxiety, torment, reconcile with its shortcomings and mistakes, accept life changes.
Most effectively copes with emotional outbursts and overloads, revives feelings and experiences, contributes to the nobility of thoughts and emotions. If you need not just relaxation, but a recovery and rethinking of the situation, then the essential oil from rosewood will be the ideal choice.
Rosewood is non-toxic, does not cause irritation or unpleasant reactions when inhaled or by direct contact. Both the fragrance and the aroma oil itself have unique tonic properties that do not have the effect of a stimulating effect.
Activating - perhaps the best synonym for rosewood, because oil not only contributes to the harmonization of internal states, but also restores the immune system, regulatory and protective functions of the body.
It is also endowed with mild analgesic properties, the ability to stimulate cerebral circulation, relieve nausea and improve the composition of blood and lymph, soften and relieve inflammation in diseases of the respiratory system, including chronic cough.
From a cosmetological point of view, rosewood has bactericidal, soothing, restoring properties equally with emollient and stimulating internal changes qualities.
Thus, the oil is perfect for sensitive and aging skin, increases not only elasticity or firmness, but also the protective abilities of the epidermis. Removes peeling, cracks, dermatitis, spots, unevenness of color and texture, restores color, effectively suppresses viral, bacterial, allergic diseases and neurodermatitis.
In addition, rosewood exhibits excellent deodorizing properties.

Of all the varieties existing in the world, only rose trees are suitable for the production of essential oil:
- in Mexico - Mexican butter,
- in French Guiana - cayenne oil (by the name of the capital),
- Brazil’s tropical forests in the Amazon are Brazilian oils.
Yellow flowers of a Brazilian tree with pink or yellowish wood do not look like roses at all
Until 1927, first the Mexican and then the Guiana tree was the main raw material for the production of ether, supplied to Europe. Then the extraction of the product began in Brazil, and this oil quickly gained popularity due to lower prices. Now the production of cayenne ether is almost suspended, although this product is considered by true connoisseurs to be of better quality.
In Brazil, large-scale cutting of rosewood threatened the safety of tropical forests, so the government issued a law obligating the producers to plant a new plant instead of each cut down plant.
Chemical composition and benefits
In the composition of the oil:
- linalool - alcohol with the aroma of lily of the valley,
- terpineol - alcohol with a floral scent,
- tsineol - menthan oxide with a burning taste and aroma of camphor.
The product also contains a small amount of dipentene, nerol, ketones, geraniol, aldehydes, benzene and phenolic compounds.

Subtleties of choice and storage
Real rosewood oil is considered scarce, so attempts to falsify the product are not uncommon. Most often, fraudsters use for this purpose synthetic linalool or oil ho. In order not to be deceived, when buying a product you should follow five rules:
- Price. Genuine rosewood essential oil cannot be cheap: since it is “removed” from wood, the yield is small, about 1.2%. At the beginning of 2018, the average cost of 10 ml of a quality product is 1,000–1,800 rubles.
- Packaging. The oil should be sold in bottles of dark glass: only in such a container does it retain its healing properties.
- Label. A manufacturer with a good reputation always indicates in Latin the botanical name of the plant from which the oil is made. Essential oil labeling means that the product is natural, Fragrances oil is synthetic.
- Smell. Must have a few shades, fake is usually endowed with a "flat" flavor.
- Volatility. Drip the air on a dry clean sheet of paper, if after 4–5 hours there is no stain, or the trace is barely noticeable, the product is genuine.
- Manufacturer. It is better to buy essential oil from reputable firms with a good reputation, for example: Aura Cacia, Iris, AKH, Balm Balm, Karl Hadek, Glorion.
Essential oils retain healing properties only when stored in a tightly closed bottle of dark glass
Keep a bottle of oil should be in a dark, cool place, away from children.
Precautions and Contraindications
Use of the product is contraindicated for children under 6 years old, as well as for:
- individual intolerance,
- pregnancy and lactation,
- reduced pressure
- oncological diseases

Inside, in addition to the above, you should not use oil in the exacerbation of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and kidney pathologies.
Application of the product to the skin may be accompanied by a slight burning sensation, however, if the sensations are too strong, unbearable, immediately rinse off the product with warm running water. If there are any other side effects in the process of use, the use of oil should also be abandoned. The air is forbidden to be applied on the skin undiluted, as this is fraught with burns.
Before using the product is mandatory allergotest. Apply a small amount on the elbow bend or wrist, wait a day. If the skin has not reacted with undesirable manifestations (burning, dryness, irritation, desquamation, etc.), external application of the product is safe.
With most ailments and unpleasant conditions, rosewood oil helps to cope with the help of aromatherapy, carried out by means of aroma lamps and aroma macula. Recovery occurs through the inhalation of healing esters. This method is not a panacea, but in combination with other methods it can accelerate recovery and alleviate the condition with:

Aroma lamp, exuding the smell of rosewood, will create a cozy atmosphere in the house, relieve fatigue and set up a romantic mood.
When I was a student, I decided to wear aromatic oil with essential oil, the aroma of which I liked incredibly, but was quite specific. On that day, several of my classmates complained about an unpleasant smell and headaches; I no longer put the jewelry on in public places. Rosewood oil also smells rather harshly, it is no coincidence that the ethereol is added to men's perfume compositions, so before taking it with you, it is worth considering whether it will not cause discomfort to others.
If there is no aroma lamp at home, you can use the “old-fashioned” method. Wet a large towel, put the right amount of oil on it and put it on a hot battery.
About magnetic and bioenergy properties of the method
The Indians used rosewood oil to "open doors to other worlds." Now the scent of ether is actively used in meditation, it is believed that its smell contributes to self-improvement. In spiritual practice, oil helps to open the chakras and protect the aura from harmful external influence. For those who are far from such a deep understanding of the world, aromatherapy with rosewood etherol will help:
- relieve tension
- easier to treat lesions and misses
- gain self-confidence

- improve mood.
Aromatic baths are indicated for all diseases and conditions listed as indications for aromatherapy, as well as for varicose veins, dry eczema, itching, dermatosis, irritations and peeling of the skin. The procedure helps to remove toxins from the body, clean the blood and lymph.
Mix 6–8 drops of oil with a tablespoon of salt, honey or milk and mix in a bath filled with warm (37–38 ° C) water. Relax for 15–20 minutes.
When taking a bath, make sure that the chest is located above the water level, this is especially important for people with diseases of the cardiovascular system.
Once I added the ether to the water directly from the bottle, without first mixing it with some emulsifier. Already three minutes after immersion in the bath, instead of the desired rest and relaxation, I felt an unbearable burning sensation: the oil did not mix with the water molecules. I had to take a shower urgently, but even that did not help, on the back of my legs I found redness that itched for several hours.
Massage helps to eliminate muscle pain, headaches, overcome nervous disorders, tune in to the sexual mood.
To prepare a massage mixture, combine 5–6 drops of ether with 10 ml of base oil (any unrefined vegetable oil).
With a headache, apply a small amount of the composition with your fingertips on the forehead, occipital tubercles, temporal fossae and projections of the carotid arteries, and massage these areas slightly. Repeat 2-3 times with a quarter-hour interval.
Massage with rosewood oil will relieve muscle pain, improve mood and return sexual desire

Reviews: "The magic smell, which literally cuts into the memory"
A large number of positive reviews about the essential oil of rosewood confirms the effectiveness of using the tool for the benefit of health and beauty.
Would like to share your opinion on rosewood oil. Of course, it is impossible not to note this magical smell, which literally cuts into the memory. I am sure once having felt, you will never confuse this fragrance with any other) Of course, everyone perceives smells differently, but for me it is something very sweet with lefty tones of spice ... Oil favorably affects the emotional state of a person, a feeling of happiness and satisfaction appears ...) Well suited for aroma lamps. I have long wanted to try aroma-combing, and finally I did it, I used a 3k brush on a comb made from natural materials. oil and start to comb. I did not fall asleep my hair!) They immediately ceased to magnetise, became silky and flowing. In addition to aromatherapy, you can make nourishing masks, for example 4k. rosewood oil, 7–8 c. jojoba oil, 3-4 c. chamomile oil, mix and apply on the roots, and then on the length, and on the tips I advise coconut oil) In general, I was satisfied with the oil)
Tell your story. A bottle of rosewood ether gave us my godmother. This bottle was lying with us for a long time, until I became interested in the topic of aromatherapy. Subtracted on the Internet that the ether of rosewood has a unique property of gently awakening the body, without having a sharp stimulating effect. I am hypotonic in life, the pressure of 110/70 is normal for me, but it happens even lower, for example, during the morning awakening. Plus, my thyroid function has been reduced, due to which my metabolism is slowed down. Therefore, it is sometimes difficult for me to get out of bed, especially if I went to bed late, got sick, became nervous the day before. Naturally, I immediately realized that EM rosewood for me was what the doctor ordered. But to be honest, I didn’t believe right away. It seemed to me that aromatherapy is something from the series “2 nuts a day prolongs life by 2 years”, i.e. it is difficult to check the effectiveness, and maybe it is impossible at all. In general, the results after the first time I did not dream. But, nevertheless, in the evening I put an aroma lamp near the bed, clean water and a candle with a lighter. The next morning (my husband left the house at 8), staggering, I spent it (I note that during this period I just had an exacerbation of the chronic inflammatory process + severe disagreements with my parents), and in a half-conscious state I lit a lamp, dropped oil and fell asleep, hoping to get up no earlier than 11 hours. You cannot imagine my amazement when, half an hour later, I opened my eyes and realized that I no longer want to sleep, I also didn’t want to sleep in bed, and in general the sensations were like I didn’t wake up just now, but I was awake for several hours. Such lungs EARLY awakenings over the past 10 years for me is a rarity, the morning rise for me is still chronic stress!
I also have a rose tree, I sometimes add it to tonic ones (1–2 drops per 50 ml. Of mineral water with eloe from the ampoule), also into masks. I never had a negative reaction to my sooo sensitive skin, unlike many other essential oils. For me personally, such a tonic evens and refreshes the complexion. In masks, especially significant effect is not noticed.

Reviews of rosewood essential oil
My pharmacy simply dropped my eyes on this oil. In the end, after reading about him, I came back for him. And how could it not return if it has bactericidal, soothing and regenerating properties? EM RD also improves the elasticity, elasticity and protective abilities of the skin epidermis. It also eliminates peeling, cracks, stains, unevenness of color or texture, restores color and much more. How can you get past this oil if it solves all your problems? I decided that in clay masks it would be his time. At that time I had problems with my skin - rashes started. I looked like a cucumber - only the pimples on the face were not green, but red or flesh colored. It looked weird. At first, my skin tolerated such masks well, but lately (I still do them once or twice) began to respond with a hellish burning sensation. Therefore, start small - with 1-2 drops and gradually increase the dosage. If you feel a strong burning sensation, wash it off with cool water and apply a moisturizing mask. As for clay, everything is also individual. Blue is best for me, my skin reacts worse to another. And, in fact, about the results - the skin becomes cleaner, gradually recovering. Inflammations appear less frequently. As for the rest of care - washing the mesh with avadam and week 2 made masks of green clay with rosemary (to remove marks from acne). But most importantly, I tell you - a good moisturizer. Only when I found a good cream, my skin began to recover faster. I enrich the cream with essential oils: ylang-ylang, cedar, etc.
Rosewood oil is used for aromatherapy. You can drop one drop in the oil burner, or you can simply put it on a hot battery or on a light bulb. The effect is different, but I like that and the other way - I am guided by the situation. The oil works very well - it calms the nerves, relaxes, helps to think clearly and clearly and make intelligent decisions. Also, rosewood oil is used to enrich cosmetics. Pre-rose oil should be mixed with the base in proportion: 1 tablespoon of base (I use regular Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and 1 drop of rosewood essential oil. This mixture can already be added everywhere: in the face and body milk, in creams and in lotions, and in shampoo. The oil has a soothing, bactericidal, emollient and is suitable for fading skin. The effect does not appear immediately, but only after two weeks - the skin is younger and more taut. But if the skin is thin and very sensitive, then the oil should be used very carefully - you can dry out or burn the skin, you never need to apply oil in its pure form - only diluted. You also need to observe the dose and listen to your body, otherwise the oil can cause headaches. It is better to use very small doses, and over time you can increase a little. I was very pleased with the oil - I had another pet in my collection.
The oil belongs to the woody fragrance series. Since the esters of rosewood are expensive, they are obtained from leafs or steamed wood. Smell-mystery, otherwise I can not describe. Unlike most, it is different. The aroma is bright, with a floral touch, hot with a tart smoky background, with bitter and spicy nuances. This is undoubtedly an antidepressant oil, allowing me to enjoy inner harmony. Will cope with emotional overloads, cheer up. Take life changes, inspires you to create what you love. Look at this oil, maybe you will like it as much as I do. I recommend it as a natural fragrance for calm relaxation and deep recuperation. Thanks for attention. Your aromamaniac, Lesha.
The use of rosewood essential oil allows you to relax and eliminate the effects of stress. If you use the tool in these dosages, you can get the maximum benefit and get rid of premature aging of the skin. Regular use of the product also improves mood.
