Ocotea essential oil


(Ocotea quixos)


A key ingredient in Stress Away essential oil blend, Ocotea essential oil is extracted from the stem and leaves of the ocotea tree in Ecuador, and is related to the cinnamon species. This essential oil has an aroma that is different from any common cinnamon and has far less skin sensitivity than cinnamon essential oil.  This is because the compound that creates skin sensitivity, cinnamaldehyde, is less than 5% of Ocotea oil  and up to 50% of cinnamon bark essential oil.

Ocotea has the highest level of alpha humulene of any Young Living essential oil.  Only copaiba essential oil has comparable levels of this natural plant compound.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use. Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water. Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists. Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Healthy eating: When used in conjunction with healthy eating habits, Ocotea can help you meet your goals.  Add a few drops of Ocotea to a glass of water or your favorite tea to help curb snacking urges and preserve healthy eating habits.*
  2. Breakfast:  Add a drop or two to a bowl of oatmeal or other hot cereal in the morning for extra flavor.
  3. Baking:  Ocotea has a similar profile to cinnamon.  Substitute Ocotea anytime you would like a less intense cinnamon flavor.
  4. Tea: Add to hot tea or cocoa for a flavorful boost.
  5. Pork chops: cover your pork chops with applesauce spiced with Ocotea!
