Rosewood Oil description

Rosewood oil is a fragrant plant oil with a spicy-sweet scent, also known as bois de rose oil. Extracted from wood chips from a species of evergreen tree, rosewood oil contains several volatile fragrance chemicals, including camphene, geranial, geraniol, limonene, linalool, myrcene, and neral. Rosewood oil is used chiefly as a fragrance and flavoring ingredient; there’s no research pertaining to its benefit for skin and in fact, it is more likely to irritate skin.
