The guaiac botanically known as Bulnesia Sarmientoi is an evergreen tree that is native to Latin America. This tree grows up to 20 meters. It blooms blue flowers, which turn white as they age. Additionally, the tree’s bark is thick, and the wood is exceptionally fragrant. Traditionally, Guaiacwood Essential Oil was considered sacred wood and used as incense burned to deter evil spirits. It was also used to provide relief to other health-related conditions like chronic rheumatism, uterine infections, and respiratory infections.
