Stinging Nettle Pure Absolute
Botanical Name – Urtica dioica
Origin – France
Colour – Brown/Green viscous pourable liquid (warm gently before use)
Urtica dioica is abundant in northern Europe and much of Asia, usually found in the countryside. It is less widespread in southern Europe and north Africa, where it is restricted by its need for moist soil, but is still common. In North America, it is widely distributed in Canada and the USA, where it is found in every province and state except for Hawaii and also can be found in northernmost Mexico. It grows in abundance in the Pacific North West, especially in places where annual rainfall is high. The European subspecies has been introduced into North America and South America.
This rare and extremely hard to find absolute oil is a natural product produced from the stinging nettle plant itself by solvent extraction. The absolute needs to be warmed gently before use and is a viscous pourable liquid.
It has a clean fragrant, herb like scent which is reminiscent of summer flower meadows . A must have for blenders and perfumers who like to experiment with new and exciting aromas or to create a new nature inspired cosmetic preparation.
Pure Absolute Oils or Essential Oils should always be diluted with a carrier oil such as grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil before using on the skin. A patch test is recommended to see if your skin is sensitive to the product. If blending into creams, lotions, body butters etc, 1-2% maximum of the pure absolute oil or essential oil to 100% of the product is usually about right.
For External Cosmetic Use only.
