Violet Leaf Absolute Oil (5 mL)
Violet Leaf Absolute Oil is derived from the Viola plant (Viola odorata), a tiny perennial plant grown mostly for its ornamental dark violet or white flowers. It is native to Europe and Asia, but has also been introduced to North America and Australasia. It is also known as Sweet Violet, English Violet, Common Violet, or Garden Violet. This is a rare, precious, high-quality oil with green, earthy, slightly floral overtones and is considered to have relaxing, soothing, and inspiring properties.
The sweet, unmistakable fragrance of Violet has been popular for centuries, particularly in the late Victorian period and it has long been used as an ingredient in many cosmetics and perfumes. Both the leaf and flowers also have a long tradition of use in herbal medicine. It has historically been used to treat congestive pulmonary disorders and sensitive skin conditions, and in India, where it is known as Banafsha, it is commonly used to treat sore throats and tonsillitis. Its scent was also believed to comfort and strengthen the heart during times of grief.
