A very straight-forward technique of Infusing flowers it only takes a bit of patience & time-lets, say about 4-5 weeks.
If you have the Roses for it, you should definitely find the time!
This simply stunning yield of "Infused Rose Oil" is unlike anything I could compare with-
with marked floral undertones mixed with spicy-herbal ones, The coconutty tones do not detract from it, but make it more sensual (Think Monoi de Tiare with Rose).
The Roses impart a lighter fragrant oil, without those honey-like undertones of the Damask Absolutes & Rose Otto, and varies from both Rose Egyptian & Rose Moroccan.
An undertone from the very complex notes of Carnation absolute turns up-.the way the "green" of Turmeric in blends reminds of Tuberose Absolute.
By the end of the year, friends and family just sniffed and took some away.
I used it through the winter months for my 3&5 yr olds with dry skin, they were smooth-skinned and smelled amazing and to this day, adore to massage and be massaged!
For the longest time, I've wanted to trying my hand infusing Davana, described as the most gorgeous male fragrance ever by who, the name slips the mind!
I've used this rare, difficult to work with essential oil to form the heart notes of one of my perfumes called Male Delicious, its fruityness further enhanced on a bed of benzoin and Rock Rose and forever fell in love with Davana.
Davana (Artemisia pallens) is a Heart note with a Fruity (apricot) odor of hay and licorice.
Davana, is in the same species as Wormwood & other fragrant plants of the Artemisia family but with its distinct smell. Robert Tisserand lists it as non-toxic and very midly irritating.
The smell of Davana essential oil , I could say, is like a combination of Oakmoss & Honey absolutes.The smell of this infusion, from the leafy stalks of Davana, for now, is mossy & green.
Both the green stems and the leaves carry the fragrant scent, so I have put both in the infusion. Updates will follow
