Guaiacwood(Bulnesia sarmientoi) essential oil/Paraquay wild harvest



Olfactory properties of Guaiacwoood(Bulnesia sarmienti) essential oil/Paraquay wild harvest
The essential oil of Guaiacwood is a solid golden-brown waxy mass at room temperature. It requires gentle heating to become a flowable liquid and when mixed with other essential oils will remain in a liquid state. It is quite common for guaiacwood to be mixed with gurjun balsam essential oil in a 50/50 proportion so it will remain in a liquid form. This interesting material presents a delicate sweet, woody, creamy- balsamic slightly roseaceous/smoky odor which has a uniform odor profile from beginning to end.

It blends well with a wide variety of materials due to its mild, sweet, creamy aroma provides excellent fixative properties at very low cost.
