It is also known as Papyrus Sedge, Paper Reed, Cypriol, Nagarmotha and Nile grass . It is native to Africa also India and forms tall stands of reed-like swamp vegetation in shallow water.
Papyrus sedge has a very long history of use by man, notably by the Ancient Egyptians as it is the source of papyrus paper, one of the first types of paper ever made. The highly buoyant stems can be made into boats. It is now often cultivated as an ornamental plant. In nature, it grows in full sun, in flooded swamps, and on lake margins throughout Africa, Madagascar, and the Mediterranean countries. This rare and hard to find essential oil is a natural product produced from the plant itself and has a unique earthy, woodsy, mossy like scent.

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. With a dilution it is not necessary to dilute the oil as it is already diluted and can be used straight on the skin although a patch test is still recommended.
