Our wildcrafted tamala essential oil is steam distilled from the fresh leaves of an evergreen tree in tropical and subtropical areas of the Himalayas of Nepal. The distiller has formed a farmer cooperative, which has helped the local people significantly raise their quality of life. Tamala essential oil is warm, bright, and resonant with the spicy aroma of cinnamon—but without the sharp bite of cinnamon leaf or cinnamon bark. Tamala oil is also gentle on skin and creates a quiet atmosphere for relaxation where tension seems to melt away.
