The Champaca flowers are a beautiful deep orange-yellow, but vary in color according to locality, and growing conditions. In many areas where it thrives, the flowers are used for ornamental purposes and for worship in temples. Because the flowers have long been culturally significant in the devotional rituals of India, our supplier sources flowers that are carefully plucked from, and with no damage to established trees in an area where new trees are continually being cultivated. Thus, this absolute represents a step in the right direction for sustainably-sourced fragrance materials.
Champaca blossoms were and still are commonly used to make an
attar - regarded as a holy fragrance - by distilling the oil from the flowers directly into a receiver containing Sandalwood Essential Oil. One of the world's most expensive perfumes oriental to French lines, such as famous Joy, Jadore (Dior), Euphoria CK, etc. contains Champaca Absolute among other exotic and highly prized floral notes. It is very potent and only a small amount is needed and would be great as a fixative for perfumes.
In aromatherapy, the fragrance of Champaca Absolute is well known for its soothing and calming capabilities. In his books, Jennifer Peace Rhind suggests that the Champaca Absolute has a relaxing, euphoric effect on the body, perhaps similar to that of Jasmine or Neroli. Its seductive and beautiful fragrance produces a celestial atmosphere that soothes, relaxes and strengthens the mind after a stressful day.
