Organic Tuberose Oil
Also known as Organic Tuberose Essential Oil and Tuberose Absolute. Our Organic Tuberose Enfleurage, (Polianthes tuberosa) is part of our Artisan Quality line of essential oils.
Our Organic Tuberose Essential Oil – Enfleurage (Polianthes tuberosa) is pure undiluted Tuberose Oil extracted by Enfleurage. Most Tuberose Oil is extracted by harsh chemical solvents and is therefore called an “absolute” (or Tuberose Absolute). FYI – Some refer to this tuberose oil extracted by the enfleurage method as Organic Tuberose Essential Oil but, the proper term is Organic Tuberose Enfleurage Oil. Like all of our essential oils, enfleurage oils, absolutes and blends at Artisan Aromatics, this oil is of the highest therapeutic quality bottled by hand in USA. This oil is just one of our line of Artisan Aromatics Enfleurage Oils.
Tuberose Oil – Method of Extraction
Our Organic Tuberose Essential Oil Enfleurage is most rare, coming from a small grower/extractor in South America who extracts the essential oil from the flower by the ancient method of enfleurage, using only palm oil (organic) and alcohol (organic) derived from local sugar cane (organic). The entire process of extracting the Tuberose oil it done by hand using no heat and no harsh chemical solvents. Pure local palm oil is used to absorb the aromatic oils from the Tuberose flower petals. Once the palm oil is completely saturated with the essence of the tuberose flower, the palm oil is separated from the Tuberose oil by cane sugar alcohol which and evaporated to leave only the pure Tuberose oil.
The process for producing the Organic Tuberose Essential Oil is quite labor intensive and requires many pounds of the Tuberose flower petals per milliliter of oil, but the results are astounding. Most noses would find the aroma to be quite similar to that of the actual Tuberose flower.
Pure Essential Oils, Quality & Experience
Using our 20+ years of experience we carefully source all of our essential oils, carrier oils & hydrosols.

Then, to ensure maximum freshness and potency, it is bottled by hand in USA only after orders are received.
Organic Tuberose Essential Oil – Enfleurage cannot be distilled like most essential oils due to the delicate nature of the flowers. Enfleurage was the traditional method of extraction used in ancient Egypt and into the early 20th century, but solvent extraction using hexane to create “absolutes” has virtually replaced enfleurage except for our own Tuberose Absolute. Solvent extracted Tuberose is used extensively by the perfume industry, but not by us. No chemicals other than organic alcohol are used to extract the Tuberose Organic Essential Oil we provide.
Either method (enfleurage or solvent extraction) is time consuming, and oil yields are quite small for the amount of materials used. Over 3,500 pounds of blossoms are needed to produce 1 pound of the essential oil. This is why Organic Tuberose Essential Oil – Enfleurage is one of the most expensive oils on earth, even more than most Rose attars. In traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremonies, Tuberose flowers are worn as a wreath around the head of the bride.
The heavy, sometimes slightly spicy, tenacious and sweet-floral fragrance of the Tuberose flower is quite distinct from all others.

The unique aroma of Tuberose can rejuvenate the mind and body, and Tuberose´s magical fragrance is also considered to have powers as an aphrodisiac. In India, it is called “Mistress of the Night”.

Aroma of our Enfleurage Oils
Most noses love the aroma of our enfleurage oils, but a few (less than 1%) of our customers smell more of the palm oil than the essential oil. Initially, in addition to the aroma of the enfleurage oil, one smells the aroma of palm oil a bit “earthy”. But, if given a few moments to “breathe”, the floral aroma of the oil supersedes or replaces the aroma of the palm oil. This has to do with differences in receptors in the nose. Since our enfleurage products cannot be returned for a refund, due to their rarity, we recommend that you first purchase a small sample vial to insure that you are not among the 1% of people who dislike the earthy note of the palm oil.
No returns for Enfleurage oils due to limited supply. You may wish to test first by purchasing a sample vial.
