Boronia Absolute Oil (5 mL)
Boronia absolute is used in high-class perfumery work, especially florals. Used in specialised flavour work, especially rich fruit products. The steam distillation of Boronia megastigma yields only an extremely small part of the oil actually contained in the flowers, and the steam-distilled oil possesses an odour quite different from that of the flower itself. The most appropriate method of recovering the natural floral oil from B. megastigma is by absolute extraction
Boronia Absolute is primarily used in the perfume and aromatherapy industries due to its unparalleled scent. The oil was named after Francesco Borone, a young 18th century botanist who met an untimely death while studying under Sir James Smith. Smith named the sweet-smelling Australian shrub after his deceased protégé as a way to honor his memory.
HISTORY OF USE
Boronia Absolute is one of the most delectable, sought-after fragrances in the world. Distilled from the sweet oils offered by the flowering Australian Boronia plant, this elixir is captured at the precise moment the flower’s stigma opens to receive pollen from bees.
Fragrance Impact: Uplifting, refreshing, energising.
Botanical Name: Boronia megastigma
Description: beautiful, intoxicating, floral aroma with a sweet and fruity character.
Properties: A fragrant fruit cocktail of peach, raspberry and apricot, with rich, complex undertones of violet and wood.
Uses: Boronia Absolute is used primarily within perfumery and fragrancing applications.
Characteristics: distilled from the petals of the Australian Boronia shrub. Meek and unassuming at just a meter high, this shrub bursts with art-deco like flowers: a purple-brown on the outside, bursting with vibrant yellow on the inside. The petals form a cup shape meant to welcome pollinators, while the complex, fruity, floral aroma of the flower’s oil leaves bees no choice but to enter the sacred petal folds.
Production Method: Solvent or CO2 Extraction
Sacred Lotus Petals have become etched in folklore because of a fabulous people who supposedly occupied the north coast of Africa and lived on the lotus, which brought forgetfulness and happy indolence. The Sacred Lotus flower was also what the Ulysses’ crew smoked after coming ashore following years at sea.
