Gurjun Essential Oil



Gurjun oil is a antimicrobial, decongesting oil with historic ties to traditional medicine. It is often used to treat cold and flu symptoms, as many claim it helps to clear blocked airways, and has antibacterial and antifungal properties that make it a great cleaning agent. It has been found to act as an anti-inflammatory on the skin, reducing the appearance of many skin conditions. Traditionally used to increase the flow of blood around the body, it is still believed by many to promote red blood cell production.

Our 100% Pure Gurjun Balsam Essential Oil has a fresh, woody scent with a gentle sweetness that is both clarifying and relaxing, and is clear to pale yellow in colour. It is extracted via steam distillation from the wood of the gurjun tree, which is native to Indonesia but is now cultivated widely in India, China, Thailand and the Philippines.

Botanical Name: Dipterocarpus Turbinatus


An ancient Ayurvedic remedy, gurjun was often used to relieve respiratory problems.
