PINE | Absolute

  • $24.00

Pure Pinus sylvestris absolute.

Pine absolute is extracted from the needles of Pinus sylvestris (commonly known as Forest Pine, Norway Pine, Scotch Pine or Scots Pine), a coniferous tree that grows across Europe. 

The absolute yields a deep and sweet coniferous aroma, with jammy berry-like notes. Pine absolute is fresh and full-bodied while lacking the terpenic notes that are present in its essential oil counterpart. Evokes the feeling of crushing sundrenched sticky pine needles between your fingers.

*Undiluted pine 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. 

ASPECTS: balsamic · deep · woody · resinous · sweet
APPEARANCE: thick, dark green, semi-solid mass
PLANT PART: needles

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.
