About essential oil blends:
Essential oils evaporate/dissipate at different rates, so the aroma of the perfume evolves over time. In general, oils that dissipate the most quickly (within a couple of hours or less) are called “top notes.” “Base notes” are heaviest and stay around the longest, anchoring the perfume. “Middle notes” linger longer than top notes and help to integrate the perfume. Essential oils are complex. Each oil contains many different constituents, some of which evaporate quickly and others that move more slowly. Essential oils interact with our individual body chemistry, so the perfume will smell slightly different on each person who wears it.
Essential oils in Woodland Spirits: Woodland Spirits
perfume emphasizes woody base notes and is enriched with warm, spicy, sweet middle and top notes. BASE NOTES:
oil (Juniperus mexicana
) is steam-distilled from cedar chips and sawdust. Trees are not cut down for the production of the oil. Frankincense
oil is steam-distilled from resin collected from Boswellia serrata
trees grown in India. Oakmoss absolute
is extracted from the lichen Evernia prunastri
, which grows on oak trees. It’s produced in France using a solvent-free distillation method. Benzoin
is obtained from sap of the tree Styrax benzoin
grown in India. The aromatic resin is removed from the sap using solvents, which are then evaporated. Benzoin has a warm, sweet vanilla-like aroma. Peru balsam
(actually from El Salvador) is a delightful base note steam-distilled from the resin of Myroxylon pereirae
, a tree native to tropical areas of the Americas. Peru balsam has a spicy vanilla-like, mildly smoky aroma. MIDDLE NOTES:
Myrrh, a middle note, is also obtained from tree resin. Our myrrh
is steam-distilled in France from the resin of Commiphora myrrha
, a tree grown in Somalia. Ginger
essential oil is steam-distilled from the roots of Chinese Zingiber officinale
. Ginger provides an earthy, spicy note to the perfume. TOP NOTES:
Our tangerine 5x
, a top note, is a concentrated citrus oil that’s cold-pressed from the rinds of tangerines in Italy. The pressed oil is distilled to concentrate it and remove terpenes. Cardamom
essential oil is steam-distilled from seeds of Elettaria cardamomum
, a cultivated perennial grown in India. Cardamom has a warm, spicy aroma; the seeds are often used in chai tea blends.
