Cistus Absolute should not be confused with Labdanum Absolute because it is derived from flower tops and leaves whereas true Labdanum Absolute is 'always' solvent extracted resin. As a result of different plant parts being extracted Cistus Absolute is slightly sweeter than Labdanum and MUCH easier to work with.
Cistus Absolute is best suited for meditation, yoga, and natural perfumery with its calming, centering and grounding aroma.
