Extraction Method


Note Classification



Rich smoky wood, reminiscent of whiskey, with oaky vanilla undertones


Oak is the quintessential wood that vintners utilize to bring flavor and color into a bottle of wine through the use of oak barrels or chips. It was once thought that these barrels were used to extract oakwood absolute. This may have been true at some point, but today this exquisite oil comes from virgin wood that is usually a byproduct from the local lumber industry.

This viscous oil is mostly used in perfumery, and can be blended into therapeutic diffuser blends. The rich base note properties will round out a blend and weigh it down for a longer lasting aroma.


1/2 oz. and 1 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Blends Well With
