Our organically crafted Labdanum Absolute, also called Labdanum Resinoid, is extracted from the opulent oleoresin exuded from the Cistus ladaniferus, a beautiful extremely fragrant flowering shrub native to the Mediterranean region. Labdanum, also known as the Rose of Sharon (Song of Solomon 2:1), has always been regarded as a precious perfume that contains ample aromatic, spiritual, and emotional benefits.


Cistus shrub contributes greatly to the luscious aroma of the Corsican countryside and is an integral part of the island's aromatic biome, called the maqui. To protect itself from the sun and heat, the plant produces a strong ambery, balsamic-like gum that that envelops the twigs and leaves. In ancient times, Labdanum was collected by combing the beards and thighs of goats and sheep that had grazed on the Cistus shrubs.

REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES

Today, Labdanum Absolute is extensively used as a fixative in various fragrance applications, as well as being useful in skincare for the treatment of wrinkles, mature skin, and dry skin. Similar in scent to musk and ambergris, Labdanum Absolute is used extensively in perfumery for its excellent fixative value and to impart a rich, suave sweetness and natural undertone. These two controversial fragrances (Musk and Ambergris) obtained from deer and whales, are often replaced with Labdanum in cosmetics and perfumes.

Emotionally and energetically, Labdanum Absolute is grounding and uplifting and is often used to anoint the chakras during meditation as well as visualizing spiritual experiences and bringing them to consciousness.
