Birch essential oil has a unique, fresh scent, which we often describe as a 'smoky bubblegum'. It often also has a hint of 'root beer' to it, and is enjoyed by many. This particular oil is often considered when making blends to promote hair growth, relieve aching muscles, soothe arthritic pain, and calm throbbing headaches.
It is said that Birch carries an energetic vibration that helps to ease old emotional pain that has been buried deep. It is also thought to help free ones expressive self, while releasing fears and cleansing out negativity.
Contraindications: Use sparingly, and highly diluted. Avoid during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and do not use on babies or young children. Avoid on damaged or sensitive skin.
