Cannot say enough good things about this birch!! It is so soothing mixed in a lotion and rubbed over my sore shoulders after a long day at work! I love the wintergreen mint smell. It is strong and works well. In my top 5 essential oils!

This oil is one of my faves. I use it in several blends. Smells sooooo good, and a great tension reliever and anti-inflamatory added to liniments and ointments.

Birch Sweet oil works great in massage blends for sore muscles and rheumatic pain. Use the oil in small quantity and make sure to dilute it well in carrier oil because it's extremely strong and can cause irritation. I use it in a blend for soap.... No complaints here.

Super great EO for salves. Smells just like wintergreen (as it should since they contain the same chemical compound).

This has a super strong sassafras smell, and although NDA packages their oils extremely well, this one unfortunately still managed to leak out onto my other products in the shipping. It's too bad, because although the smell is nice, it's so overpowering and becomes cloying after a short amount of time.

Amazing for muscle pain. I have to report that nightly, my husband keeps asking me to massage him with this (diluted in carrier oil). Amazing product. Amazing price. Thank-you NDA.

I tore my MCL and used it neat. It alleviated the pain and helped heal my knee twice as fast!! My husband also puts it on his shoulder neat and takes the pain immediately so that he can sleep.

New Directions Sweet Birch Oil has essentially made me free of pain in the neck that I had for years due to a broken 2nd vertebrae many years ago. I massage it on my neck each day after the shower and when I realized that I do not have the pain any more I just smiled. It also helps when I have pain in my hip after a replacement. It is great for my arthritic joints and saves my stomach from having to absorb pills for my pains. I use it neat and never have any bad reactions. Really, it saves my life from pain. Thank you for carrying this great product!

I cannot wait to try this oil. I am placing this on order ASAP. I am glad that it is finally back in stock. I am looking forward to trying this oil for muscle treatment for my husband. My husband hates medicine-like smells. Wintergreen-like scent sounds great to me!

Add a little Vanilla to this oil and you've got an instant memory trip to those little brown Root Beer Barrel Candies by Brach's. I've used this oil on abnormal skin and wow! All better. I think its a great cool then warm sensation in skin applications. I just love it.

A great EO. The smell is reminiscent of sassafras (root beer), but with an herbaceous note.

Purchased Birch Sweet for use in a fall smudge and couldn't believe it when I opened it! Took me back to my aunt's tavern with Birch Beer on tap! Yummmy smell. Now I can't wait to use it in other creations for aches & pains. Thank you for the trip down memory lane! Keep selling wonderful products.

My rehabilitation clinic sees many work- and auto-injured patients that have long term (sometimes years) of chronic pain. We created a unique anti-inflammatory analgesic massage oil using Sweet Birch oil from NewDirections. The oil was such a success, that patients now buy the massage oil to use at home.

Wonderful minty type scent, and very useful in my sports-massage blend. Usually not recommended for aromatherapy as is toxic especially when undiluted, but quite handy for sore muscles. Great price and good quality.
