Product Description: Although Birch is sometimes difficult to find due to the grueling extraction process, it has its benefits for use. Most of the time when you see Birch on the market it will be for a limited time offer, or seasonal promotion. If you see it then that is the time to buy it, because you may not see it again for some time. Birch essential oil is more closely related to the Wintergreen essential oil in scent, apposed to other tree oil. Most commonly used in supporting the muscular, and joint function of the body, and consists primarily of the compound methyl salicylate, and can subdue the pain of the muscles. This is one oil that you need to be alert in purchasing, as many times companies will dilute this essential oil since it is so rare.
