Labdanum Historical Snippets:

Labdanum is a popular oil within the perfume industry due to its musky, luxurious scent. Collection of Labdanum occurred by combing a goat’s beard and thighs after they grazed on cistus shrubs. Interestingly, ancient Egyptian Pharaohs wore false beards that were held together by the oil.

Labdanum Absolute (Resinoid)

(Cistus ladaniferus – Labdanum)

Resin - Steam Distilled

***Please note that Labdanum Absolute is a very thick and viscous resinoid so it will not blend with Carrier Oils and most other essential oils.  In order to pour and use Labdanum it needs to be warmed to make it less viscous. See further information in our FAQ section.

Shelf Life of Absolutes, Resins & Resinoids

Our freshly decanted Absolutes, Resins & Resinoids will last for 3-4 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
