If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Violet absolute oil and its many wonders.
Using the process of solvent extraction, the leaves of Viola odorata produce an oil with a green, earthy, and slightly floral aroma. This is a middle note oil that blends well with Basil, Bergamot, Carrot Seed, Cumin, Cedarwood, Geranium, Lavender, Rose, Rosemary, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang.
Like many other floral essential and absolute oils, Violet Absolute is a phenomenal addition to homemade perfumes and aromatics. Since this oil is a middle note, you’ll want to combine it with at least one top (Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary) and one base (Cedarwood, Sandalwood) note in order to have a well-rounded blend with a lasting aroma. If you’re someone who doesn’t wear perfume, you can add a few drops of this oil or a hand-crafted blend to a diffuser. If you make your own diffuser blend, we recommend storing any extra oil in an amber dropper bottle, so you don’t have to individually blend oils each time you want to use them. Perfumery is the recommended use for Violet Absolute.
