Extraction: Distillation of the flower heads
A pale yellow essential oil, liquid-like with a sensuous sweet, green, floral odour.
A beautiful creamy-white flowering bush with fragrant flowers that grow in the exotic Middle Eastern and African countries. It has a rather strong aroma, however, it is very delicate in contrast. Distillation takes up to 24 hours because of the chemical makeup of the essential oil which, is very complex. Parts of the oil can be distilled and then sold, due to this process great care is taken to supply the whole essential oil.
