CAUTIONS: Absolutes should be avoided during pregnancy and never ingested (taken internally) and should be kept away from children and pets. No medicinal claims are made for this product and the notes above are provided for guidance purposes only. Absolute Oils are powerful plant extracts and should be used with extreme caution. You should seek the advice of a qualified practitioner should you be in any doubt.

It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance – particularly the rare and exotic notes – become lost.

Lonicera caprifolium from which Honeysuckle Blossom Absolute is extracted is also sometimes, and some would argue, better known as Absolu de Chevre-feuille (Absolute of Goat’s Leaf). This is, apparently, due to the fact that goats love to chew honeysuckle leaves. It is a very rare oil. Production methods are often erratic.

It also sometimes and less well known as Italian woodbineperfoliate honeysuckle goat-leaf honeysuckle, Italian honeysuckle, or perfoliate woodbine

Many oils labeled as Honeysuckle are adulterated or synthetically produced. Some of these originate in China and, in our opinion, should be avoided.

This oil is from France where production has started again in small quantities. It has been absent in the market since the mid 1930’s.  Small artisan makers in both France and Italy have continued the tradition in the interim, manufacturing small quantities. This is for high end hand made perfume manufacture. It has not generally been available to the public during this time in itsasbsolute form. The synthetic oil, produced throughout the 50’s and into today, has dominated the market with the rise of mass produced “designer” fragrances.
