What is Rosewood?
Native to the Amazon, Aniba rosaeodora, or the rosewood tree, can grow up to 100 feet high and 60 feet wide. The tree’s wood, often a rich red and black, is highly sought after, as is its bark for its oil. Wood chippings of the tree, often called the Pride of Bolivia, are steam distilled to create this oil, which is a popular additive to cosmetic products.
Often referred to by its French name, boie de rose, meaning “wood of rose,” is highly sought after for its scent in cosmetic products and also for its skin-supporting properties.
