Amber Absolute Oil (5 mL)
Amber absolute oil comes from the fossilized resin of Pinus succinefera, millions of years old, or sometimes as young as 200 years (copal amber). Amber absolute oil starts off as a fossilized resin. The crude essential oil is obtained by dry distillation of the fossil resin. Amber readily dissolves in ether, alcohol and commercial solvents; it is then ready to be mixed with other things to become some form of amber liquid.
Amber absolute oil is produced from the fossilized sap of the giant prehistoric conifer called Pinus Succinefera. Amber is a fossil resin. The resin flowed out the bark, probably after previous injury, dried up and hardened. There are a variety of different flow forms like drops, mass flows, and “drop-on-drop-flow” called (Schlauben). The latter has more fossil inclusions, because it resulted from thrust-wise resin flow. According to scientists, the oldest well-known amber originates from the Carboniferous epoch and has an age of approximately 345 million years (Upper Carboniferous). Amber is an ingredient in many popular modern-day perfumes. Amber absolute oil is calmative, analgesic, antispasmodic, expectorant, a febrifuge and it encourages harmony and balance. Amber absolute oil has been used to treat ailments, such as asthma and rheumatism. Amber is calming for disturbed conditions, restores equilibrium by harmonizing energy imbalance.
