Birch bark essential oil

The up to 100 species are present in large parts of the northern hemisphere, in Europe, in North America (especially on their east coasts) and in Asia as far as Japan. The distribution area of the sugar birch (Betula lenta) is located in the province of Ontario in the east of Canada and in several sub-states in the northeast and southeast of the USA also in Russia. The birch and especially the birch bark is used for many things (more). The birch bark essential oil is obtained from the bark of the sugar birch (Betula lenta).

The birch bark has recently been tested in numerous scientific studies. It has been shown to promote healing on damaged skin, anti-inflammatory and itching-relieving. Particularly good results can be expected in damaged skin due to sunlight (actinic keratosis), neurodermatitis, foot and nail fungus or psoriasis.

Birch oil should never be applied pure, as the oil has a strong irritant effect on our skin. Therefore, if you want to apply the oil externally, you should dilute it with a suitable carrier oil. Simply add 4-5 drops of birch oil to 10 ml of a carrier oil and then apply the mixture. If you want to use the oil against dandruff or too dry scalp, you can simply add a few drops to your shampoo.

If you want to take birch oil orally, it is recommended to mix it with some honey, as birch oil tastes very bitter. If you want to use birch oil as a classic fragrance oil, you can simply heat it in its pure form in a fragrance lamp or diffuser.

Attention: Before internal use, please consult specialist books, doctor or aromatherapist.
