B like Bois de Hô essential oil (Cinnamomum camphora linaloolferum)
The essential oil of Bois de Hô is also known under its other name, more exotic, the essential oil of shiu.
It is distilled from its wood. Not to be confused with that of Bois de Rose whose resource is tending to disappear (IUCN has just classified the Bois de Rose as an endangered species, to be absolutely protected). Its delicate fragrance comes close and its virtues are very similar. That's why we love it. Its application in cosmetics is unavoidable. With its regenerating, tonic and firming properties, it is our anti-aging ally.
