Birch Tar Essential Oil
Botanical name: Betula alba
Extraction method: Crude birch tar is first extracted via dry distillation by heating the bark of the Birch Tree until tar and ashes are left. Then the birch tar is steam distilled to extract Birch Tar Essential Oil.
Description: The Birch Tree can grow up to 50 - 65 ft (15 - 20 meters) and is native to the Northern Hemisphere. It has slender branches, light green oval leaves, distinctive fragmented silver-white bark and an enchanting aroma. That’s why the Birch Tree is sometimes known as the “Lady of The Woods” for its elegant silhouette and fragrance.
Blends well with: Sandalwood, Cananga, Rosemary, and Benzoin.
Aromatic scent: Birch Tar Essential Oil naturally smells of tar, charred wood and smoke - like the comforting smell of a warm campfire, with a hint of mint.
