Birch - Aromatheraphy Essentail Oil

BIRCH TREEThe sap of the birch tree is collected in the same way as the maple; collected in Buckets and boiled into syrup. It has historically been used to make birch or root beer. Its bark is often distilled with wintergreen leaves and birch oil has often been substituted for wintergreen.

Its most therapeutic uses involve external application especially for sore, cramped muscles and for skin or scalp irritations.
