  Labdanum Absolute
Cistus ladanifer (Rock Rose), wild, solvent-extracted from resin from the leaves, Spain.

Quantity:
 


Treasured by perfumers, Labdanum, the absolute produced from my beloved Rock Rose, adds a balsamic tang to any blend. Much deeper and more resinous than the steam-distilled Spanish Spanish Cistus Essential Oil. I would never use the absolute for the physical effects of good Cistus oils, the lymphatic drainage and detoxifying effects, but its aroma suggests to me that perhaps it might have the emotional effects of a wonderful Cistus oil.

Labdanum is a key ingredient in amber blends, chypre perfumes and in many Oriental perfume blends.

Some of our clients have reported use of Labdanum as a spiritual or meditation oil. The aroma seems to take them to other places in their mind, and later they crave the smell of it.

This is a very thick oil. It will not come out of the orifice reducer in the bottle, however you can stick a tooth pick or something similar into the bottle to spoon it out. Otherwise, the bottle will need to be warmed quite a bit. This will loosen the oil, but you must work quickly, because it will solidify very quickly.

SAFETY: Robert Tisserand advises that:  possibly contains labdane diterpenes such aslabdane and sclareol

Available here, undiluted, or in a 10% dilution in light, odorless, Fractionated Coconut Oil. For the GC/MS analysis, please click here.
