Essential Oils are the essence of a plant.
Only the most precise extraction methods are used to preserve the unique signature of the plant.
I use these, blended with absolutes, to create Natural Botanical Perfumery.Absolutes are concentrated extracts derived from plants or flowers and are intense in both plant constituents and fragrance.
Absolutes are yielded through the use of a solvent.
They are far more expensive than essential oils but absolutes provide great depth and focus to a formulation and are vital to the Perfumers Art.
