If there is a single plant that defines the smell of the desert after a rain, it is chaparral. It is also known as creosote bush or greasewood. It's not the nasty stuff that is put on railroad ties---it is a heavenly smelling plant that has amazing healing properties for the skin. Chaparral is a medicinal powerhouse and has the properties of being an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral and wound-healing.
We use it on actinic keratosis and have had them disappear totally. It may be effective on skin cancers.
Please note: This product is an infused oil, not an essential oil. It has been double infused so is very strong (and wonderful!) You may use this product as is, or blend it into your own herbal creations.
Ingredients: Organic olive oil infused with wildcrafted chaparral leaf.
