An evergreen tree with a reddish bark and yellow flowers. It is native to the Amazonian region and the area is
the main producer. The continued felling of Rosewood for the essential oil in the Amazon is environmentally damaging. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from wood chippings and produces a colourless to pale
yellow liquid. It has a floral spicy scent.
Traditionally, rosewood oil is used for acne, colds, coughs, dermatitis, fevers, frigidity, headaches, infections, nausea, nervous tension, skin care and wounds.
