Scientific Name: Betula lenta
North American birch is extracted from the fragrant inner bark and twigs of the tree. Birch oil is the real source of ‘oil of wintergreen’ essential oil, used in chewing gum, breath mints and many quality medicinal products.
Therapeutic birch essential oil (Betula lenta) can be sourced from the U.S.A or Canada in an indigenous, wild-crafted state.
Always test a small amount of any essential oil first for sensitivity or allergic reaction. Do NOT use if pregnant. Harmful in strong concentrations, always dilute.
