Behind the Bottle: Guaiacwood Essential Oil

Follow us to the Gran Chaco Forest in Paraguay, where doTERRA sources one of the most unique essential oils: Guaiacwood.

Our CPTG® Guaiacwood essential oil is sustainably and ethically sourced from Paraguay. Working with our sourcing partner, we’re changing the future of the at-risk Gran Chaco Forest—one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world.

Guaiacwood has been used for centuries in meditation practices and wellness ceremonies by Native Americans. Guaiacwood is often used in perfumery and skincare products. Steam-distilled from the heartwood of the Bulnesia sarmientoi tree, Guaiacwood essential oil has an earthy, grounding aroma with a subtle sweetness. Guaiacwood is blended with Fractionated Coconut Oil and can be used both topically and aromatically. Its woody scent provides a calming, tranquil atmosphere.
