Birch Sweet Essential Oil

Adam Michael has this to say “Birch sweet essential oil is commonly used to relieve pain and excels at treating sore muscles, sprains and painful joints due to the anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. Methyl salicylate works by passing through the skin and entering the tissues where it inhibits the formation of prostaglandins, thereby reducing inflammation and pain very quickly.

Birch sweet has a similar natural chemistry to wintergreen. The main constituent is methyl salicylate and this is a superb pain reliever with a pleasant aroma. Handle with care and dilute down very well before massage. The aroma is fresh, slightly sweet with a iced mint nuance. This birch sweet essential oil is steam distilled from the bark of the tree. Clear to light yellow in colour and of a pourable viscosity.”
