Overview

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 diffuser blends. The rich base note properties will round out a blend and weigh it down for a longer lasting aroma.

Packaging

5 mL, 10 mL, 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.

Label Updates

We are currently transitioning to a smudge-proof label for our essential oils. If ordering more than one oil you may receive both types of labels as we make this transition. Our new labels are a poly-base and printed in full color in-house.

Precautions

This oil can cause skin irritation. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.
