BiofloreHo wood essential oil

Bioflore Ho wood essential oil
10 ml

The essential oil of Ho wood (also called Shiu wood or Japanese laurel), is an oil of Far East quite close to that of Rosewood. It has the same therapeutic/cosmetic properties but its anti-infectious, tonic and astringent action is stronger and the impression on contact with the skin softer. Its aroma resembles that of rosewood, but is less nuanced. Use in massage, diffusion and bath
Ho wood essential oil can be used to treat respiratory problems (even babies and young children) and forms, as well as that of rosewood, a remarkable synergistic couple with the essential oil of ravintsara to treat a large number of viral and bacterial pathologies (also in children). In association, it fights genitourinary infections. It is a good muscle tonic and an excellent skin tonic, able to prevent the development of wrinkles and firm the skin.
On the psycho-emotional level, linalool is a gentle tonic that helps, without defusing the emotional capacity, not to over react in a stressful situation. Emotional stress resulting in an untimely immune reaction, a state of permanent stress ends up exhausting the immune defense potential and makes vulnerable to the first germ that passes. So Ho wood and rosewood are anti-stress essential oils and enhance immunity. They are also a permanent remedy against both external and internal gloom.
