Fossilized Amber Oil
Fossilized Amber oil is produced from fossilized tree resin that is millions of years old. Unlike our oils from living plants, there is no essential oil that can be directly obtained from the fossilized resin. Instead, the oil comes from a process called dry distillation whereby the amber resin is processed over high heat until an oily substance is obtained.
While there are several sources for Amber around the world, Eden Botanicals is the sole source in North America for this rare form of fossilized Amber Oil. Instead of the inferior oil extracted from Baltic amber, our Fossilized Amber Oil is extracted from 35 million year old Himalayan fossilized tree resin. This makes for a dark, viscous oil with smoky, resinous, leathery, woody-dry notes and hints of pine and balsamic overtones. A unique and interesting note in any natural perfume composition, Fossilized Amber Oil dissolves in both alcohol and fixed oils and makes an excellent fixative and base note. In addition, this oil is beneficial in calming the nerves, is antispasmodic, diuretic and stimulates the circulation of blood.
Blends well with: Angelica, Balsam of Peru, Cedarwood, Champaca, Cinnamon Bark, Cocao, Fir Balsam, Geranium, Jasmine, Labdanum, Liquidambar (Styrax), Nagarmotha, Patchouli, Rose, Sandalwood, Tobacco, Tuberose, Vanilla, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang.

- amber fossilized oil is the best natural fixative of aroma fileds. Review by Agath
My opinon is that amber fossilized oil is much more preferred because it is joyful, mellow and is rich in fragrance. But Amber oil is with empyreuma petroleum smell.
10ml sandalwood oil is blended with two drops of amber fossilized oil which pleasant arorma can be lasted more longer and never thin out. Amber fossilized oil is the best natural fixative of the aroma fields.
