Amber Oil Blend with All Natural Essential Oils and Extracts
Amber oil does not come from amber, which is fossilized tree sap. Amber is a blend designed to replicate the aroma of ambergris, a substance vomitted up by wales and used heavily in perfumery. Generally Amber is a blend of cistus absolute, Benzoin absolute and Vanilla absolute. It has a strong vanilla like aroma with musky, civet like undertones. This particular Amber blend contains cistus absolute and steam distilled cistus, but is primarily Benzoin with other oils and absolutes.
Amber is great base note/fixative in perfume blends and is used frequently in Oriental perfumes. It blends beautifully with Jasmine and deep earthy oils like patchouli and sandalwood. Of course you can just use it diluted as is without adding any other oils! I love it in soaps too.
