Honeysuckle Absolute

Extraction Method: Wild Harvested, Cold Pressed

Country of Origin: India




This is a pure and natural rare beauty from India. Honeysuckle Absolute (Lonicera) is an intensely sweet, rich floral, heavy, narcotic and practically a perfume by itself.

Honeysuckle Absolute is rarely used in perfumery because there is little of it to go around; it is simply too expensive to produce. Honeysuckle flowers emit their fragrance at dusk and the gathering of blossoms must occur at a specified time.

Honeysuckle Absolute offers an aromatic impression that is less complex than Poplar Bud Absolute, but it engages the senses by telling the kaleidoscopic story of all narcotic florals (Tuberose, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Magnolia, etc.) The character it reveals is one of a white floral vintage which evaporates in fits and starts before reaching a honeyed dry down that echoes the enigmatic scent of autumn outdoors.

Honeysuckle Absolute Oil is derived from the dried flower petals of Honeysuckle through the solvent extraction method. Honeysuckle is native to Northern Hemisphere and belongs to the family Caprifoliaceae. This plant is also known as woodbine, Plumeria alba and Lonicera Caprifolium. Honeysuckle Absolute Oil possesses antibacterial property and is widely used to treat sore throat. It also has anti-oxidant property for which it is used in the formulation of anti-aging cosmetic products. Besides, this oil is widely demanded in perfumery for its characteristic sweet floral fragrance.

Aromatherapy: For its sweet floral whiff, it is used in aromatherapy to ease pain, calm irritation and reduce inflammation.

Cosmetic: It is extensively used in the preparation of anti-aging products.

Skin Care: This absolute oil comprises the cleansing and detoxifying properties which help to restore glowing and fresh skin. Skin troubles such as blemishes, rashes, acne, cuts and abrasions can also be treated effectively by using this absolute oil.
