What does ‘absolute’ mean when talking about an essential oil?



Referring to the method of extraction, absolutes are very intense scents created when a plant’s essential oil cannot be gathered through steam distillation. Often used for Jasmine, Rose, Neroli and other precious flowers, the essential oil is extracted through solvent extraction. They are very potent and only 1 – 2 drops are needed to blend with 50 ml base oil. These essential oils’ colour is more reddish too.
