Common Uses

Birch is a very warming essential oil and is great to add to massage blends. Aromatically, it has a sweet, wintergreen scent. Topically, it quickly causes warming. It should always be applied with a carrier oil, even to very oily skin, as the topical application has a remarkable drying effect. Diffuse or apply in 2-5% dilution.

Precautions

Birch has a naturally high concentration of salicylates. It is also very sweet, which makes birch essential oil a hazard for children.
