About Oakmoss Oil:

On the branches and trunk of the oak tree, Oakmoss is found growing besides barks of pine, fir and other deciduous trees. Oakmoss is also found on trees like alder, sycamore, willow and maple and also on soil, fences, rocks and walls. During dry winter it is collected, dried and then sold.

The thallus or the thalli is three to four centimetres in length and forms clumps that are large enough, together on the bark in a strap and flat shape. Some of the thallus has resemblance to antlers of the deer and branched high. When Oakmoss is wet it is yellowish green to dark olive green and when dry, its colour range is green to a greenish white. When wet the thalli is rubbery and when dry it is rough.
