History and Origin
Rosewood oil is obtained from the steam distillation of the wood, bark and stems of Aniba rosaeodora, a tree growing in the rainforest now protected. Its name originates from the color of its wood, reddish or pink, commonly used to manufacture marquetry, like violet wood.
Rosewood must not be confused with rose-tree wood. It should also never be taken or sold as rose oil!
The essential oil of rosewood that we offer you is regulated by the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) which aims to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten the survival of the species.
