The amur cork tree is native to parts of Asia – Korea, Japan and China – and has strong medicinal properties. It’s a fairly sizable tree and is often left alone due to its gorgeous, tall expanse, aromatic leaves and beautiful fruit. Thankfully though, there are plenty in the region and only a portion of them have to be used to procure this oil. The deciduous trees – with dark leaves and brown, deep corkish bark – can grow to be nearly 12 meters tall. The interesting part about this tree and its benefits is that most trees aren’t used for their bark until after they’ve reached 10 years old, while the fruit can be used right away. Also, the process of collection is typically in the winter. Here are some of the key benefits of amur cork tree oil.
Due to the properties within the oil, it’s a great way to reduce fevers.

Even sleeping can seem like something difficult to do. Using a bit of amur cork tree oil can help get rid of that fever. Apply it to your pressure points on your wrist and on the bottoms of your feet. The fever will get drawn out and you’ll start to feel better in eight to 12 hours.
