Richer and more tenacious than our previous stock, this Osmanthus Absolute bursts with luscious sweet ripe apricot and pear notes…as my French perfume mentor in Eze relates “C'est magnifique”!   Without doubt the most tenacious and sensual Osmanthus Absolute smelled in a long time.   There’s nothing fleeting about its aroma, a couple drops in odorless Fractionated Coconut Oil applied on top of the hand and 8 hours later it still brings a naughty smile.  Yes, it’s expensive, but the best usually is!  

This Osmanthus absolute beckons attention in upscale perfume creations although it can stand all on its own as a single note perfume.    Osmanthus blends well with Sandalwood…like a match made in heaven!  Try blending with a few drops of our Sandalwood Mysore; these two meld together exquisitely producing an elegant sweet floral-fruity, peachy-apricot, creamy and heady, voluptuous aroma not soon forgotten. 

The Osmanthus flowers in this absolute were grown in China and hexane free extracted  in Grasse, France. This hexane free extracted Osmanthus absolute is without solvent residue making it well suited for aromatherapy use.  

Osmanthus comes from a tree native to southern China and cultivated for its flowers whose apricot-like fragrance is traditionally used to scent tea.  In Guangxi, local farmers beat the trees in September and October to gather the innumerable small flowers that range in color from pale honey yellow to bright orange.  

The Chinese have been developing the extraction of Osmanthus blossoms since the 1960's, all by solvent extraction.   The annual production in China totals about 1 ton of concrete. After extraction about one tenth of that becomes available worldwide as a solvent extracted absolute, with far less available as hexane free extracted.  This is a beautiful absolute by artisan hexane free extraction performed in the perfume capital of the world, Grasse, France.

Osmanthus is a strong mental stimulator sending signals of pleasure and happiness to the brain. This makes it a much sought after oil for use in fine and natural perfumes.

The aromatherapy properties of Osmanthus fragrans are both soothing and comforting, lending to its use in essential oil blends for pain relief, meditation and yoga.

Aromatherapy use: Spiritual, evokes emotional calming, soothing, balancing; meditation, yoga; pain relief blends

General use: Oil diffusers, potpourri, as a blending ingredient for adding pure essential oil essence to massage oil, perfume, bath oil, bath salt, bath and shower gels, spa treatment oils and creams, soap making, candle making

Contraindications: None known

Not all in....
First of all let me say that overall the LBG's quality is second to none....However, I have ordered the Osmanthus twice, the first order the color of the Osmanthus was a pure lime green, the second time not so pure a bit muddy, but in either case the smell of the Osmanthus is heavenly, it is a scent that everyone on earth needs to experience at least once in their life....I just wished the color was that pure, clear lime green everytime. ADDED by ADMIN: Tinge of color and viscosity of this hexane free extracted absolute can be slightly different from batch to batch and from different producers. Our current batch extracted in France, although slightly less green, is far richer and more tenacious than previous stock. It is not always possible to achieve 100% consistency of color and viscosity with absolutes, especially hexane free. This is the nature of delicate extractions. Buying bulk (8 oz+) would be the best option for product manufacturing where slight color variations may have an impact.

Osmanthus Absolute Hexane Free
This is the best smelling odor ever. It is what I picture heaven smelling like. Worth every dollar. And the packaging was the best out of 7 different top name companies that sell oils and absolutes I have purchased from in the past 2 months. Lotus Garden Botanicals is my favorite.

The best
I just wanted to say, I have tried about 7 different Osmanthus oils from other companies. Sad to say they didn't even come close to the real smell of the Osmanthus flower compared to yours WOW. I have this plant at home and just can't get enough of the sweet smell. I'm a single man (not weird of course lol) but I put a drop on the back of my hand just so I can smell it all day. Thank you, I have found my new source.

Mmmmm
When I just sniffed it out of the bottle, it did not smell anything like what I expected! Then, I discovered it was just so concentrated. only needs a few drops and dilutes it with coconut oil. applies it and lets it breath for 10 min, and then there is the sweet Osmanthus Fragrans honey apricot fragrant! It smells EXACTLY like the plant we have in the backyard (except that oil lasts longer)! I love the rose absolute but the Osmanthus is even more versatile! Sweet and more subtle and still beautiful. Will definitely buy it again but probably not for a while because you need just a few drops and even the 5 ml bottle is going to last a very long time.
