Birch, Sweet is a graceful tree which stands at about 25 metres high, and has a pyramidal shape while young. It has bright green leaves and a dark reddish-brown aromatic bark, which is broken into plates or patches. The essential oil is made by steam distillation of the bark. A floral water is a also made.

Birch, Sweet is colourless, pale yellow or reddish tinted liquid with an intense, sweet, woody, wintergreen-like scent.  You will recognise the smell as  reminiscent of many pharmacy style products to treat muscular and back pain.  It increases local blood supply and is used for medicinal aromatic baths. It can also be used for headaches and toothaches.
