  Violet Leaf Absolute (no ratings yet)
Viola odorata, solvent-extracted leaves, Egypt.


After a lot of requests, I finally found an exquisite Violet Leaf absolute that we are proud to put our label on. Intensely green initially, this absolute has a soft subtly floral dry down.

I have seen this absolute recommended in various mature skin care blends. Victoria Edwards says that it acts as a sedative, a liver decongestant, and a circulatory stimulant, that it treats aging and problem skin, blackheads, and enlarged pores. (Wondering how it would work blended with Cistus's astringency and lymphatic stimulation…and the aromas would, I think, speak to each other.)

Emotionally, Violet leaf is said to support the emotions and the heart…to soothe both nostalgia and obsession…. Worwood describes it as “silent, seductive, and persuasive…helps you to realize your potential.” She recommends it for timidity of the spirit, to overcome fears and shyness. Energetically and ritualistically, it is an oil of springtime, and of new beginnings and new growth.

For perfumery Violet Leaf Absolute offers a wonderful springtime green leafy note, that should blend beautifully with Rose, Tuberose Absolute, Lemon, Clary Sage, Grapefruit, Mandarine, Basil, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Clove, Bay, Cinnamon, Geranium, or Lavender.

At room temperature Violet Leaf is semi-solid. You will need to warm the bottle to help liquefy the Violet before using. Available both undiluted, and in a 10% Dilution in Jojoba.
