Cistus E.O (ROCK ROSE)

Adam Michael has this to say “I am very pleased to say I have now found a Spanish source for gorgeous Cistus ladanifer essential oil. In my opinion this material is warm, earthy, with a highly fascinating and stimulating sweet heart note, perhaps comparable to smelling aged ambergris and sugar sweet figs. This incredibly tenacious material is produced by steam distilling the leaves and twigs and is amber in colour and of thin viscosity. This plant is also responsible for Labdanum in its various forms.”

This material is a great fixative for the perfumer and used in massage within aromatherapy can be considered useful to effectively treat Candida, Escherichia, and Staphylococcus.
