Patchouli Champa - The warm, earthy base notes of dark patchouli lifted by the soft warmth of Golden Champa. These are pure blends of fragrance oils, so all you need is a little to add to carrier oils to create your own perfume.
Uses: Natural concentrated fragrance oils for the body; may be used for the bath (add several drops to bath), creating personal perfumes (dilute in vegetable carrier oil), oil burners and warmers and environmental scenting (dilute in spray or diffusion)
These oils consist of a wide variety of “Attars” from true essential oils to man-made compounds.
- Essential oil refers to a specific process of extracting oil from a plant.
- Compounds are a blend of natural ingredients and nature identicals.
- Attar simply means perfume. Attars are made to capture the true essence of a flower, herb, root, tree, shrub, resin or leaf of a living botanical substance.
Essential oils can be irritating to the skin, subject to climate and habitat, and cost prohibitive. There can be variations in color, texture, and fragrance. The use of attars usually controls this aspect of perfumery. The advantage of using attars is that they mix with each person’s chemistry, creating a unique fragrance for each person who wears it. None of these scents are tested on animals or use animal-derived ingredients.
