Guaiacwood Essential Oil is steam distilled from the wood of the Guayacan tree, native to Paraguay in South America. The oil produced has a sweet, earthy, woody aroma with rose undertones and has a viscous wax-like consistency. The oil can be warmed and will remain liquid for a few hours or blended with other oils. Once Guaiacwood Essential Oil is liquified and blended, the oil will remain mobile.
Guaiacwood Essential Oil is used as an anti-inflammatory for a tightening effect on the skin and imparting a lustrous glow to the face. Guaiacwood is commonly used by Aromatherapists to relieve joint and muscle pains as well as other symptoms of arthritis, gout, and rheumatism.
Guaiacwood Essential Oil is used to increase efficiency of the immune system with its antioxidant profile. The oil is also used to scavenge free radicals and stimulate the lymphatic system and allow for lymphatic drainage. Guaiacwood is also recommended in aromatherapy for respiratory health and soothing symptoms of sore throat and laryngitis.
