Birch oil helps ease the more uncomfortable parts of getting older, the scattered schedules and aching muscles, by promoting relaxation and supporting a healthy emotional balance. Birch also is one of the most effective essential oils in relieving physical pain.
Very similar to Wintergreen essential oil, Birch is 99.5% methyl salicate, a type of ester. Therefore, Birch is one of the best essential oils for pain, having a similar chemical breakdown of aspirin.
Throughout the ages Birch oil has been used as a skin tonic and brightener. The early settlers to America witnessed American Indians using the inner bark of the birch tree as an infusion and flavorful tonic tea. True Birch essential oil has a captivating top note aroma.
