Product Description: Tagettes is an annual growing herb that it small with spindly stems and yellow flower clusters. Originally from South America it has been used as a source of essential oil for the perfume and industry known as tagette or “marigold oil”.
Cautions: It is important to note that all absolutes are extremely concentrated by nature. They should not be evaluated in this state unless you are accustomed to the undiluted fragrance. For those trying Absolutes for the first time, we strongly recommend they be evaluated in dilution. Otherwise, the complexity of the fragrance – particularly the rare and exotic notes – becomes lost.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
Blends well with: Lotus Pink Absolute blends well with generally all oils, though it seems to work best with other floral oils.
