Aroma:Very floral, rich, sweet and warm, exquisitely exotic. Similar to Jasmine, yet more intoxicating.
The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is thick and incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba Oil, classified as"i/J"("in Jojoba").
Latin Name:Polianthes tuberosa
Country of Origin:India
Cultivation Method:Harvested from Wild Growing Plants
Extraction Method:Solvent Extracted
Aromatherapy Properties:Relaxing, warming, aphrodisiac. Has limited history of medicinal use, but is known from the world of perfumery.
Suggested Use:Add 1-2 drops to a diffuser for a relaxing, feminine aroma climate.
Add 1-2 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat, mixing the oil with Aromaland's Coconut Emulsifier or some Half & Half prior to blending it with the water (in order to prevent the oils from floating on the surface).
If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your body care or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads - Car Diffuser, Scent Ball, Spa Scenter - or nebulizers. If using an aromalamp or Aromaland's Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away; but do not overheat the lamp dish!
History:Its East Indian name (rat ki rani) means Mistress of the Night.
Specific Safety Information:No known toxicity. Make sure you are not overdosing, since it is very strong and easily overpowering.
