Armoise (Mugwort) - Wild EO

Artemisia herba-alba Asso

(3)

Artemisia herba-alba is a specific Artemisia species indigenous to Morocco that provides the essential oil known as Armoise (Mugwort). Ours has a very fresh, cool, soft green, sweet-camphoraceous aroma that is highly diffusive in much the same way as Peppermint, however while the aroma has a very potent initial effect, this subsides after a few minutes of exposure to air.

Product Overview

Artemisia herba-alba is a specific Artemisia species indigenous to Morocco that provides the essential oil known as Armoise (Mugwort). Ours has a very fresh, cool, soft green, sweet-camphoraceous aroma that is highly diffusive in much the same way as Peppermint, however while the aroma has a very potent initial effect, this subsides after a few minutes of exposure to air. In natural perfumery, Armoise can be used in trace amounts to provide 'lift' to top note accords; to add a fresh, green, naturalness; and to accentuate other green notes such as Galbanum, Common and White Sage, Rosemary, etc.

The aroma of Armoise may be calming when used in very highly diluted (0.25 percent[1]) applications. It contains appreciable amounts of several monoterpene ketones, including camphor (borneone) and alpha- and beta-thujone[2], and therefore Armoise essential oil must be used with great care and respect. Please see Safety Considerations for further information.

A new love affair with Armois

Rating

Upon first whiff I knew- The cloudy skies parted -dull days and fragrant doldrums were forgotten! The joyous herbal cacophony near overloaded me with olfactory happiness.... The herb that was satisfy so many perfume needs. Cool and fresh & green, citrus, mint & tea - rosemary & wine- I just wanted to throw this on some hot rocks in a sauna and then jump the snow.... are you getting my olfactory drift? I am in love!

really interesting!

Rating

used this as a middle/top note in a fougere perfume, and love it! It blends very well with funky (musty,fungal) notes like Cepes absolute and the Petitegrain Mandarin from Eden. Really enjoy blending it in minute quantities (0.5%) alongside bright greens like Galbanum and Cilantro.

Coniferous, Eucalyptus-like

Rating

Armoise (Mugwort); I thought this might be my least favorite of the bunch when I ordered it, but I wanted to give it a try (I'm not one for herbal notes usually) I was thinking about using it in lunar and clairvoyant blends and I was right; at first. My first impression was EUCALYPTUS! I hate Eucalyptus. But more and more I thought of Spruce or Fir needle oils. When it dried down it got fresh and green, but it was very fleeting overall. Definitely a top note. It has actually started to grow on me now that it reminds me more of conifers.
