Honeysuckle has magnificently scented flowers that grow upto to 2 inches in size, in terminal clusters, reddish on first opening but changing to creamy-white when they fully blossom.
Steam distilled from the flowers of the Lonicera Caprifolium, Honeysuckle Oil has an intensely sweet, honey-like floral scent, reminiscent of spring. Native to eastern Asia and Japan, the Honeysuckle (Lonicera caprifolium) essential oil is used in aromatherapy to improve mood and increase sense of wellbeing, along with a number of therapeutic health benefits.
All the parts of the honeysuckle plant including flowers, seeds and leaves are used for various therapeutic purposes, and has been used for hundreds of years in Chinese medicine to help treat various respiratory conditions. The Honeysuckle Oil is believed to possess a number of potent anti-oxidants properties that help fight against free radicals, effective in delaying the process of ageing. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties make it wonderful oil to help prevent bacterial infections and to provide relief from aching joints and sore muscles. Anti-microbial qualities make the oil useful in treating infections, viruses and other harmful microbes. The oil may also make a helpful hair moisturising treatment as well as promoting healthy skin.
