Osmanthus flowers bloom on evergreen shrubs that are cultivated for tea, perfumery, and aromatherapy. In the autumn months of September and October, farmers collect the flowers by tapping the shrubs until each petal is released to the earth’s fragrant floor.
Osmanthus Absolute serves as a sumptuous note in perfume blends or can be used as its own perfume with just a single drop. Coconut, jojoba, and sandalwood are excellent blending choices for highlighting the soothing, comforting, uplifting fragrance of Osmanthus Absolute, which is said to inspire feelings of happiness. Sadness, apathy, and worry may be swept away with a single inhale of Osmanthus, making it a euphoric inhalation for meditation, yoga, and spiritual work.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
