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.

At first thought for the novice, Beeswax Absolute Oil as a perfume ingredient might seem an odd choice. However, made from the honeycomb wax, it adds a rich silky tone to any perfume with a honeyed base note that makes it a good fixative. It is not for the inexperienced though, given its price and availability.

The fragrance of Beeswax Absolute Oil will vary dependent upon where the Bees that made it are located, the climate and, of course, the source of the flowers that they feed upon. In France it is known as Absolue Cire d’Abeille
