Chaparral (Larrea Tridentata), also known as: Creosote Bush, Créosotier, Greasewood, Hediondilla, Jarilla, Larreastat, it is a particular herbaceous woody shrub that is native to the deserts in the southwestern region of the United States and the northern region of Mexico. It is said that Chaparral is one of the oldest, living plants on Earth. Due to one specimen in the Mojave Desert called the “King Clone,” we believe it has been on earth since creation. For centuries, it has been used by the Native Americans Indian tribes in Southwestern North America and the Amerindians from South America in herbal medical remedies through many different application methods.
Its scent is unmistakably the "Desert Rain Scent" we smell during and after a desert rainstorm. It has a slightly sweet scent that has this electric energy to it that is alluring and envelops the mind and senses. It can completely overwhelm you with its aroma giving you an unforgettable sensory experience of the true essence of the desert southwest. This is why Shiflet House named its product line Chaparral Rain.
