Pure & Therapeutic Essential Oils: This oil is Therapeutic Grade. Commercial Grade essential oils are usually made of the left over plant materials after finishing the therapeutic distillation process. The commercial grade oils retain a robust fragrance suitable for soap making, candle making, as well as cosmetic manufacturing. Unfortunately, because of the reduced active therapeutic content, the commercial grade oils will not be suitable for aromatherapy or massage therapy applications. Silky Scents™ Essential Oils are all Pure and Therapeutic Grade, not Commercial Grade.

History: This deciduous shrub was introduced into England in 1784 and then was imported to France, reaching a height of 15 feet in the Isle of Wight and in sheltered localities. The leaves are very fragrant, lance late, arranged in threes, 3 to 4 inches long, with smooth margins, pale green in color, having parallel veins at right-angles to the mid-rib and flat bristles along the edges. The many small flowers are pale purple, blooming during August in slim, terminal panicles. The leaves, which have been suggested to replace tea, will retain their odor for years and are used in perfumery. They should be gathered at flowering time.
