Sweet Birch oil is steam distilled from the bark of the mature birch trees and is an odorous oil that is very reminiscent of wintergreen oil, with which is shares a high proportion of methyl salicylate, and there is a slight woody undertone, maybe smokiness. It is not as sweet as the name suggests though.
Sweet birch blends well with other woody and balsamic essential oils, but is enjoyed more if softened with an oil such as lavender or citrus.
