Observations and Anecdotal Information

Though some species of rosewood are on the endangered species list, after careful consideration, we have chosen to continue to offer this rare and beautiful oil, in faith that boycotting an herbal product does not necessarily contribute to its return to health and balance.

Seeking out reliable sources who are working to produce these oils sustainably, and supporting them, does contribute, and that is what we have done.

As my indigenous elders continually remind me, if we stop honoring and using the gifts that are offered, we become disconnected from the whole of life.  It is better to use what is offered from a plant species,  give thanks for it, appreciate it, use it respectfully and modestly, and send prayers for its speedy recovery!

This is how the indigenous elders supported the return of the bald eagle and the salmon runs when both were decimated years ago in Alaska.  Now both of these species have grown strong, and the bald eagle has been officially removed from the endangered species list.

This may seem like a naive or oversimplified belief, yet when one begins to comprehend the power that our actions and intentions carry to manifest change, this perspective resonates with truth.

This beautiful and powerful oil is a relaxant without making one sleepy or drowsy.  It makes a wonderful addition to blends for massage and spinal oil treatments, bringing a sense of calm, centering, and emotional stability.

It is a great anti-viral, which is often a hidden factor in  heart ailments.  And it is so gentle that it can be used for massage on children and even babies when properly diluted.

Rosewood relaxes, stabilizes, and balances the nervous system, and can relieve headache and nausea.

A lymphatic system cleanser, it is also a good oil for use as an underarm deodorant, working on two levels at once; stimulating circulation in the lymph glands and deodorizing.

It can be used to treat vaginal candida infections, by putting several drops of oil on a tampon and inserting it vaginally overnight.
