Fragrance raw material
EO Birch Tar has a sweet fragrance, reminiscent of tar, but also of leather. It is a strong and predominant fragrance, which is why making a dilution of, for example, 10% or even 1% is wise. In small quantities, it can accentuate scents such as vanilla and wood. It can have surprising effects on fruits, flowers and spicy scents. In larger quantities, it can be used in leathery fragrances and in special, more theatrical compositions. It compliments vetiver very well. It is mainly a base note in perfumes and is stable in most products, including soap.
Store cool, dry and dark.
PropertiesEO Birch tar is a dark brown liquid at room temperature. The substance has a long shelf life. The oil is made from the bark of birch trees, which is heated.

The composition has little been researched, but we know the oil largely consists of phenolic compounds, terpenes and alcohols such as eugenol.
