Our Violet Leaf Absolute is a highly valued and versatile ingredient that is extracted without using hexane, making it suitable for use in aromatherapy and skin care.

One of the most notable qualities of Violet Leaf Absolute is its soothing and cooling effect. When applied topically to the skin, it has a calming effect on the body, making it a popular choice for reducing swelling and bruised skin. It is also believed to be helpful with various health conditions, including bronchitis, stress headaches, rheumatism, poor circulation, and sore throats. Its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties make it a valuable addition to many natural remedies.
Violet Leaf Absolute also has excellent benefits for skincare formulations. It can be used to soothe sensitive, dry, itchy, and reddened skin caused by eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

How to liquefy and work with: Violet Leaf Absolute is quite vicious if exposed to cold temperatures (such as refrigerated or shipped during winter); you will find it needs to be gently warmed in order to liquefy and be easier to work with. I find a shot glass works well with small bottles. Place bottle in shot glass and add enough warm water (not hot/boiling) to almost reach the bottom rim of the cap. As water cools off refill with warm water until it reaches a more workable liquid state. Usually 10-15 minutes and a couple water changes is all it takes. Aromatherapy use
