Rosewood

Aniba rosaeodora

Rosewood essential oil, known for its sweet, floral, and slightly woody aroma, is extracted from the wood of the Aniba rosaeodora tree. The oil is cherished for its soothing fragrance and array of therapeutic properties.

Origin of Rosewood Essential Oil

Rosewood essential oil is extracted through steam distillation from the wood chips and sawdust of the Aniba rosaeodora tree. This tree is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest, with Brazil being a significant source. However, due to over-harvesting, the Rosewood tree has become endangered in some regions, and sustainable sourcing practices are now more crucial than ever.

A Historical Journey

Rosewood’s story is one of allure and reverence. The wood of the Aniba rosaeodora tree was prized for its beautiful, rich color and fragrant smell. In the early 1900s, French perfumers became enamored with the captivating scent of Rosewood and began to use the oil extensively in high-end perfumes. The oil was so popular that the demand led to extensive harvesting, putting the trees at risk.

The indigenous tribes of the Amazon have long revered the Rosewood tree. They used every part of the tree – from the leaves to the wood – for medicinal purposes. The oil was believed to have healing properties and was used in traditional remedies for pain relief, infections, and even as an aphrodisiac.

One legend from the Amazon tells of a forest spirit who resided in the Rosewood tree, guarding the health and vitality of the forest. It was believed that using Rosewood in rituals and medicines helped to communicate with this spirit, seeking protection and healing for the tribe.
