Our Mimosa Absolute (Acacia decurrens) comes from Mimosa flowers Wildcrafted in France, which are extracted with solvent to produce a high quality Mimosa Absolute.
Also known as as “cassie” in perfumery, Mimosa absolute is cherished as a heart-note and fixative, harmonizing the blended aromas of many famous perfumes. The aroma is warm and sweet with a tinge of spice.
Like all of our Artisan Aromatics 100% pure essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends, this oil has been carefully selected for its therapeutic quality. Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.
The Mimosa tree from which our absolute is extracted is a species of Acacia, a fast-growing evergreen tree or shrub with delicate foliage and vibrant, aromatic flowers, which burst into a breath-taking display of small, yellow blooms densely arrayed along the stems. It is native to Australia and naturalized in the Mediterranean. In France, people gift each other bushels of flowering Mimosa branches as a way to cheer in the Spring.
This plant is not related to another well-known “Mimosa Tree”, also known as Silk Tree and having the botanical name Albizia julibrissin. The Silk Tree has large, bright pink flowers shaped like pom-poms and is native to Asia.
Mimosa absolute is mainly used in perfumery where it tends to balance the other aromas in the blend. The aroma is warm, and floral and is said to be relaxing and may help with overcoming anxiety. It is used extensively in perfumery, cosmetics and, sometimes, in aromatherapy.
This Mimosa Absolute is a thick but pourable with gentle warming. The Aroma is floral, sweet, with an undertone of fresh cut grass. Top perfume houses like Chanel, and Givency have used Mimosa which is similar to heliotrope in some of their fine perfumes.
Mimosa excels in perfumery as a fixative to bring harmony among other blended aromas. Jeanne Rose indicates the aromatherapy benefits of Mimosa absolute are of a relaxing nature.
