hoja santa oil
« on: April 13, 2003, 02:47:00 AM »
I saw somw hoja santa oil in a store today, does anybody know if it is distilled from the leaves, or wood. I coulnd't find any info on the bottle, and the sites that sell it dont have detalied info on it. TFSE here doesnt have alot on it, I would gladly pay extra $$$ for safety. I have sent an email to a oil co about this, just wondering if anybee has experience with said oil.

Hoja Santa (Root Beer, Texas USA)
Botanical Name: Piper auritum
Plant Part: root
Growing Method: Conventional agriculture (100% pure and natural essential oils)
Processing Method: S/D -Steam Distillation

It's root-oil. Can't seem to find any info on the composition of this, maybe you should buy a small amount, and distill it or run a TLC and compare this with a pure sample of safrole. Check the smell of it first.

It has to be the leaf oil I believe. Thanks for the help, I must have looked for two hours last night, I must have been looking so hard that I didnt notice the answer.

Swim looked into that oil a long time ago.

Swim looked into that oil a long time ago. It's quite expensive(~240.00 for 4oz). Pretty expensive. There should be something in the search engine about it.

you can get it cheaper

You can get 4oz for about $100, root oil, that is.

But that is still expensive to me, especially when compared with sassy and camphor prices..

If it were an option

If in fact it were an option, I woould gladly pay that so as not to get a target painted on my ass for ordering sassy. I have an aversion to risking a conversation with the DEA.
