Cistus Absolute Oil

Also known Labdanum

Cistus Absolute (Cistus ladaniferus) from France is solvent extracted from the flowers and has a warm, slightly amber aroma.

Cistus Absolute is often used in perfumery.

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.
