Rosewood is deeply nourishing and offers the immune system a boost. Favorites uses for Rosewood are in a bath, cream, massage oil, and in shampoo. When traveling, add a few drops to an inhaler and enjoy its woodsy, lightly floral aroma.
Rosewood can be blended with Lavender to relieve a headache. Put both oils into a carrier oil (St. John's Wort is my favorite for a headache) and rub on the back of your neck and on your throat as soon as the headache begins.
It is also known for its skin-healing ability (antibacterial and antifungal). I like to steam my face with a drop of Rosewood in a bowl of hot water. Use the same technique for a sinus steam and let your skin soak up the Rosewood.
It has a wonderful anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antispasmodic action and is used for colds and flu, especially when there is muscle pain accompanied with a heavy cough.
This Rosewood is distilled from trees growing on a plantation. Every 2-3 years they cut the top of the tree (twig and leaf) as you would cut a bush in the garden. The following year they pick another parcel of the plantation so the entire tree is never cut down. The cutting is very controlled and the trees are protected for many years of production.
