Ocotea (Ocotea Quixos)† leaf oil
Ocotea is extracted from the stem and leaves of the Ocotea quixos tree in Ecuador and has natural cleansing and purifying properties. It has a warm, spicy scent, much milder than cinnamon, but can be used in cooking in similar ways.
How to Use:
Topical: Dilute 1 drop with 4 drops of V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex. Test on small area of skin on the underside of arm and apply to desired area as needed.
Aromatic: Diffuse or inhale directly for aromatherapy.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Keep away from eyes and mucous membranes. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use. Avoid direct sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying product.
Culinary: Ocotea essential oil has been used as a flavouring since Incaic times, and modern Ecuadorians still use this spice during general cooking and the production of food for rituals.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark place.
