Tuberose Absolute

Tuberose

Tuberose Absolute is an exquisite, highly fragrant floral oil that is most often used for perfumery and natural fragrancing work. It blends beautifully with other floral absolutes and essential oils, and it also blends well with essential oils within the wood, citrus, spice, resinous and earthy essential oils.

Tuberose Absolute

Emotionally, it is said that Tuberose Absolute is an aphrodisiacs and may help with impotence or frigidity. Its aroma is sensual and can be a beautiful addition to blends intended for relaxation, sensuality and/or romance. Valerie Ann Worwood indicates that Tuberose Absolute can be useful in promoting assertiveness, confidence, performance, self-esteem and self-image. She also mentions that it may be helpful when trying to combat addiction to drugs, in soothing aggression and calming anger.
