ABOUT THE OIL
Also known as 'Rock Rose', Cistus is a small, sticky shrub native to the Mediterranean and Middle East. This yellowish green essential oil is produced by steam distilling the leaves and tops of Cistus naturally cultivated in Spain.
This Cistus oil has a strong, sweet rose top note followed by a dry, herbaceous middle note with menthol and eucalyptus-like undertones. The aroma is generally perceived as warming and restorative. Cistus blends well with Angelica, Cedarwood, Coriander, Chamomiles, Clary Sage, Cypress, Lavender, Frankincense, Juniper, Pine, Rose, Lemon and other citrus oils, Neroli, Petitgrain, Sandalwood, Patchouli, and Vetiver.
