Description

Our Guava Essential Oil comes from wildcrafted leaves and extracted via distillation in our farm at  the foothills of the Sierra Mountain Range. High in b (beta) carophyllene and d-limonene, with 1,8 cineole, and other unique naturally occurring components, Guava Leaf originated in the American continents

 

The complex aroma of guava leaf essential oil is citrusy, spicy, and penetrating—with woodsy notes. The scent is calming and helps clear stressful thoughts out of the mind. Guava leaf oil likes to keep things moving—making it a great belly oil! Use it after trying a new cuisine, to feel steady when traveling, and for a wide variety of other belly blends.

 

Guava (Psidium guajava) leaf essential oil is distilled from leaves. Guava is a member of the myrtle family and has leaves similar to the standard myrtle trees. However, they are a bit more yellowish in color and when dried, the leaves offer a very strong mint aroma, which is counterbalanced by a sweeter almond note.  The plant is a flower producing tree, but the white to green blooms are not as fragrant as many might think and are not used for guava leaf essential oil production.

 

Guava leaf essential oils are typically made of wild harvested leaves and steam or hydro distilled. The oil has a long list of benefits and has a long shelf life of 5-7 years

 

 

BENEFITS OF GUAVA LEAF ESSENTIAL OIL

 

Currently, there is a common misunderstanding about the uses of guava leaf essential oil. It is frequently described as being “best used for diarrhea, stomach ailments, dysentery,” but that is not accurate. The plant does provide these astringent properties, but it is when the raw leaves (dried or fresh) are used to make tea. As they are 10% tannins, and tannins are water soluble though unable to endure distillation. it is only in the full leaf format that they can be used as a remedy for those conditions or issues.

 

The more common therapeutic benefits of guava leaf essential oil include:

 

  • Analgesic
  • Antibacterial
  • Antifungal
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antimicrobial
  • Antioxidant
  • Antiseptic
  • Antispasmodic
  • Antiviral
  • Astringent (topical)

 

Studies and research also show that it can be used in a cream or lotion against skin diseases as well as for pain relief caused by inflammation.  Research indicates it could be an oil to try for minor skin infections such as boils, cysts, and folliculitis.

 

In 2010, the International Journal of Current Pharmaceutical Research also indicated that it was a clinically proven broad-spectrum antifungal, and in 2012 a Thai based study said it was an effective antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antibacterial against staph infections..

 

Clearly, this is all very exciting especially because guava abounds in the Philippines.
