Beeswax Absolute

Beeswax Absolute is a unique entry in AromaWeb's Essential Oil Profile Directory because it is the only aromatic ingredient that is animal based.

Beeswax Absolute is primarily used in perfumery and fragrancing. Though there is little documentation for this harder-to-find oil, I see its potential as being a gently soothing and calming addition to aromatherapy blends intended for emotional well-being.

Beeswax Absolute can vary in consistency and aroma. The aroma is typically intensely honey-like. Depending on the source of the beeswax, the aroma can also possess a beautifully intoxicating floral quality. Some sources say that beeswax absolute can also have notes of hay, and I agree.

Its thickness can certainly depend on the temperature that it is stored at. (See AromaWeb's Working With and Blending Thick Aromatic Oils article.)

Important Note: The essential oil information provided within the Essential Oil Properties & Profiles area is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate.

General Safety Information: Do not take any essential oils internally without consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use essential oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using essential oils with children. A skin patch test should be conducted prior to using an essential oil that you've never used before. Instructions on conducting a skin patch test and more safety information can be found by visiting the Essential Oil Safety Information page. For very in-depth information on essential oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
