Absolutes are highly concentrated, aromatic oils derived via solvent extraction of plant material – often from flowers deemed too delicate for steam distillation, like Jasmine, Mimosa, Oak Moss, Osmanthus, Rose, White Lotus and Pink Lotus, and Violet Leaf. We also offer Cocoa Absolute and Vanilla Absolute, each of which have lovely, wonderful heady aromas.
The extraction process involves lower temperatures than distillation, so the aromatic compounds in Absolutes can smell exceptionally fresh. All of our Absolute oils are extracted with high quality solvent, which is carefully removed, resulting in almost none of the detectable solvent odor that can be highly evident in lower quality products.
Most absolutes do not have the therapeutic properties of essential oils and therefore, are primarily used in natural and botanical perfumery oftentimes contributing a ‘top note’ to the fragrance.
