Beeswax Absolute Safety
Wax - Solvent
An ethanol (alcohol) extracted absolute derived from the honeycomb with a soft floral and warm, rich and fine honey aroma. Used typically in natural perfumery and sometimes in personal care products. A wonderful fixative for your collection. Also a potentially gentle and soothing addition to a complex aromatherapy blend.
PLEASE REMEMBER: All our exotic and rare (hence more costly) essential oils and absolutes are available in jojoba. This allows you the benefit of enjoying Beeswax Absolute but in a jojoba oil base at a great price. An extremely cost effective way to experience essential oils and absolutes!
