HONEY | Absolute

  • $75.00

Pure Apis mellifera absolute.

Honey absolute is solvent-extracted from honeycomb and contains both honey and beeswax. 

The absolute has a very mild, sweet, oily odor, with a haylike body note and a soft, waxy undertone. The scent varies depending on the origin of the honeycomb and what kind of flower the bees produced the honey from.

It is traditionally used in perfumery and is an especially good natural fixative.

ASPECTS: sweet  pollen · hay · warm · mild
APPEARANCE: pale yellow to deep golden brown solid mass
PLANT PART: honey and honeycomb

Undiluted honey absolute is a solid mass at room temperature that must be slowly heated to become pourable. This product in undiluted form is highly recommended for experienced perfumers only or those who feel comfortable working with a solid mass that requires work to become useable. 

*This is an absolute and is not meant to be ingested or taken internally.  Absolutes should be diluted before being applied to the skin.  

Presented in a 5ml or 15ml black glass bottle with a euro dropper top that may have to be removed depending on the viscosity of the item selected. Please note that essential oils and absolutes vary widely in thickness and consistency.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe, or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Store in a cool and dry area.
