Pemou Essential Oil, also known as siam wood, is a rare and valuable essential oil. It's extracted from the roots and wood of a cypress-like tree that grows in Vietnam and other parts of southeast Asia. The Vietnamese believe that pemou brings eternal life, so it's not surprising this essential oil has long played a role both in traditional medicine as well as in religious ritual. Pemou Essential Oil has a high content of the sesquiterpenes nerolidol (also found in neroli essential oil) and fokienol. These compounds belong to a class of chemicals that act as natural plant defensive agents, and they explain the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits of pemou. Pemou Essential Oil is also used in aromatherapy as a sedative and as an antidote to feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Specific Benefits of Pemou Essential Oil as follows:

Anti-aging... Pemou essential oil contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that help prevent or reverse free radical damage to skin cells. Because free-radical damage is one of the main causes of premature skin aging, pemou essential oil can be a great addition to anti-aging formulas. 
Pain relief... Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and sedative properties, pemou essential oil is often used as an effective means of relieving physical pain. In addition, pemou oil is known to alleviate negative emotions associated with isolation and loneliness. Making topical applications more effective... Compounds found in pemou essential oil are currently being investigated for their role in making transdermal transmission more effective. In other words, pemou essential oil is a great additive in case of therapeutic topical applications of essential oils, because it might contribute to the bioavailability of other essential oils in the blend.
