Birch Tar oil is a member of the Betulaceae family. This oil is reminiscent of tar, charred wood and smoke. Many have compared it to the scent of a campfire. It is classed as a base note and blends well with earthy, minty and woodsy oils.
Birch tar is an excellent diuretic; it is used for body detoxification and cleansing. It helps enhance the body's blood circulation and prevents toxins from collecting in muscles and skin.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
