Basil CO2

A basil that smells like sweet tea?  Yes! This rare carbon dioxide distillation of basil does have hints of herbs, but it's sweet and lightly spicy and not what you would think of when smelling fresh basil. We like it in tea accords, with other green herbs like tomato, rosemary and celery, combines beautifully with lavender and adds depth to floral blends. Unique.

Benzoin Essential Oil

$10.00

It's becoming difficult to source a high quality benzoin (styrax benzoin) essential oil of late.  Many benzoins contain a strong rubbery back note that is undesirable.  We love our sweet ambery benzoin and find it an indispensable base note.  A must have essence for creating an amber accord, our benzoin has a lightly sweet aroma and excellent fixative properties.  (We recommend heating the benzoin in hot water to make it easier to dispense.)  base note

Bitter Almond Essential Oil

Our bitter almond oil is diluted to 50% making it easier to use in formulating.  Bitter almond is an incredibly powerful essence that can add a cherry or almond note to fragrances when used lightly.  Try enhancing the almond note by pairing it with vanilla, coconut pulp and tonka.  To enhance the fruity cherry aspect of bitter almond, try pairing with jasmine grandiflorum and pink grapefruit.  Warm, sweet and fruity bitter almond is a distinct accessory note useful increasing gourmand or fruity floral scents.   top to mid note, diluted with fractionated coconut oil, suitable for alcohol, oil and solid perfume formulation. Over time, this essence can crystallize in the bottom of the bottle. This does not effect the aroma of the oil. Prussic acid free.
