Ambrette Seed Absolute

Ambrette Seed Absolute

Although Ambrette Seed Absolute is said to be helpful in blends intended for aches and poor circulation, I tend to reach for Ambrette Seed Absolute most often for its use in natural perfumery and fragrancing.

Aromatically, Ambrette Seed Absolute is a rich, woody, musky oil that is wonderful to work with and experiment with when creating exotic, oriental or masculine blends. It is also said to act as an aphrodisiac.

Several sources mention that Ambrette Seed Absolute may also be helpful for reducing anxiety.
