Mimosa Absolute is a useful oil for use in perfumery and aromatherapy.
Its astringent and antiseptic properties make it particularly suitable for oily, sensitive and greasy skin but it is good to use on all skin types. Blend in a base cream or lotion. You can find it in our ready prepared Jasmin, Mimosa and Rosehip Cream.
It also contains good relaxing and stress-releasing properties which make it a nice oil to use in massage when diluted in a carrier oil.
Mimosa also has good fixative properties so is used in high grade perfumery where it lends a lovely, sweet floral scent with woody undertones. It is generally reccommended that Mimosa is used in low proportions when making perfumes.
Mimosa Absolute is diluted to 50% because if it was left as 100% it would be a solid mass and therefore unusable as an essential oil.
Absolute obtained from flowers and twigs by solvent extraction, known as wattle bark.
Wonderful sweet floral scent, with woody undertones.
DILUTE TO 3% OR LESS IN A CARRIER OIL BEFORE SKIN APPLICATION. KEEP OUT OF EYES. DO NOT SWALLOW.
'The bark of mimosa, which is known as 'wattle bark', has a leather like odour... It contains up to 42% tannins and is used extensively by the tanning industry. ' - an excerpt from 'Complete Essential Oils' by Julia Lawless
