Lilac Fragrance Oil
Sporting bright purple clusters of blooms, lilacs (Syringa vulgaris) are familiar perennials found in temperate climates throughout the world. Native to southeastern Europe and Asia, these lovely star-like flowers can be found thriving amongst the rocky hills of the Balkan Peninsula. They are a staple ornamental plant in many fragrant gardens and have had a significant impact on cultures near and far for generations! The fragrance is floral and jasmine-like, with hints of honey pollen.
Derived from the Greek word “syrinks” meaning “pipe,” lilacs have a distinct importance in myths and folklore. Celtic culture believes that these flowers are magical, carrying those who inhale the rich aroma into a supernatural fantasy world. In ancient Greek mythology, Pan, god of forests and fields, fell for a beautiful nymph named Syringa. When she ran from his advances, she was turned into the divine lilacs with help from Artemis. Pan took the hollow wood of the lilacs and created the first pan pipe, a tradition followed by shepherds for generations.
Enjoy the clean, intimate aroma of lilac fragrance oil in candle making, incense, potpourri, soaps, deodorants and other bath and body products! It has proven astringent properties, which make it an effective skin tightening agent and toner. The topical application of the oil helps reduce age lines and wrinkles. This lovely, light scent is also great as a perfume or added to your favourite moisturizer.
Our line of pure essential and fragrance oils are made in Elora, Ontario by a small, family run company. The Essential Oil line is 100% pure without any additives or dilution. The Fragrance Oil line is named as such due to the addition of Jojoba or Almond Oil as a base carrier. This is done in an effort to keep costs down or because the oil without dilution would be a thick tar like mass. It is recommended that anybody with a nut allergy should stay away from this line as a precaution. Rest assured that there are not any carcinogens or synthetics in this line.
