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 in a carrier oil before skin application. Keep away from children and out of eyes. Do not take internally or apply undiluted to the skin. For further advice on using essential oils to treat medical conditions, we recommend you seek advice from a professional.
