Oil Summary: Rosewood Essential Oil has woody, sweet oil with a floral and fruity aroma, also has stimulating, insect repellant, and cephalic attributes. It is also an excellent deodorant. Rosewood essential oil is rich in linalool, a monoterpene compound found in aromatic species with proven sedative properties2. Linalool’s anticonvulsant properties can help mitigate seizures, making it a potential antiepileptic-drug. Monoterpenes in essential oils can also prevent carcinogenesis3 and can treat cancer. The monoterpene limonene, for instance, inhibits the growth of liver, mammary, and lung cancer. Essential oils not only have monoterpenes but phenols, oxides, and monoterpenols4 as well. These chemical families are behind essential oil’s therapeutic properties. Essential oils can heal your body and mind if used with care. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Rosewood essential oil’s high linalool content will treat bug bites and prevent new ones. It has antiseptic and insect repellant properties. Its camphorous aroma wards ticks and mosquitoes safely with no use of harsh DEET. Combine rosewood essential oil, lemongrass, geranium, and eucalyptus essential oils in a spray bottle, shake, and use it as an insect repellant spray. To mitigate itching, mix it with a carrier oil and apply it on the affected skin using a cotton ball.
