Derived from the bark of the massoia tree, its main component is lactone which used for food flavouring, as an additive in butter and milk flavour.
All the Massoia Bark Oil in the world is produced in Irian Jaya and Papua region because of the geographic conditions being appropriate, and unique. Massoia trees grow best in rainforests between 400m and 1000m altitude.
The aromatic bark from the tree has been an article of commerce for centuries
For example, it has been used by Javanese and Balinese women to prepare a warming ointment, called Borbory, with a pleasant smell. Massoia bark has a sweet, coconut-like aroma and is steam distilled to yield Massoia Bark Oil.
We get all our Massoia Bark Oil from local Indonesian farmers and accumulators who harvest and process the trees through steam distillation to produce a crude form of Massoia Bark Oil.
