Violet Absolute aka Violet Leaf Absolute
Violet Absolute (Viola odorata) comes from Egypt and is solvent extracted from the Violet leaf.
Absolutes are highly concentrated, aromatic oils derived via solvent extraction of plant material – often from flowers that are too delicate for steam distillation, like Jasmine, Mimosa and White and Pink Lotus. The extraction process involves lower temperatures than distillation, so the aromatic compounds in Absolutes can smell exceptionally fresh.
Violet Absolute Part Used: Please note that this oil is extracted from the leaves of the plant and not the flower. The color of the oil is deep green and the aroma is earthy.
Generally we prefer the method of steam distillation but for some types of plant, this is not possible. This is one of those cases. When using this oil, generally on a drop or two is needed. When diluting, use just one drop per teaspoon. One teaspoon equals 5ml. and there are about 25 drops per ml.
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.
In addition to this violet absolute, we offer quite a few other high quality Absolutes suitable for natural perfumery as well as aromatherapy (via diffusion) like rose, vanilla, oak moss and more.
