Rhododendron essential oil has a unique, complex aroma. It’s floral, sweet, and herbaceous, but also soft and grounding. Bring rhododendron oil’s calming effects into a skincare routine, as it can help purify and rejuvenate skin for a radiant complexion. Our wildcrafted rhododendron essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of non-toxic Himalayan dwarf rhododendrons in the mountains of Nepal. (These plants are not to be confused with garden variety rhododendrons in homes and parks.) The distiller, a local co-operative, holds an important place in the local community.
