 Product Summary

Ocotea essential oil is extracted from the stem and leaves of the ocotea tree in Ecuador, and is related to the cinnamon species. This essential oil has an aroma that is different from any common cinnamon. Ocotea has the highest level of alpha-humulene of any essential oil.

 Ocotea is harvested from a large tree found in the Amazon Basin of Ecuador, from sea level up to 1,500 meters in altitude. The trees are divided into male and female trees, with only the female trees producing foliage suitable for distillation into essential oils. Historical usage of ocotea dates back more than 500 years, when it was used to aromatize sweets and cakes.

Though there are hints of a cinnamon base, ocotea is different from traditional cinnamon. Ocotea has high levels of alpha-humulene—one of the highest of any known essential oil. Alpha-humulene can balance the body’s internal response to irritation. Only copaiba essential oil has comparable levels of this natural plant compound.
