Odor: characteristic
Use: White Birch Essential Oil (Rectified) is produced by a process referred to as ‘destructive distillation’. This process essentially involves gathering and crushing all plant parts which are then steam distilled over a number of hours which in turn gives us an end product that looks similar to tar. This tar material is then rectified by vacuum distillation, removing the by-products deemed hazardous.
