Product Overview

Celery Seed essential oil possesses a spicy, warm, long-lasting aroma, and is used as a fragrance component in soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes.[1] Limonene is the dominant constituent at about 70%, which puts Celery Seed in the same league as the bright and refreshing citrus peel and fir needle oils. However, it is the quiet and 'peppery' phthalides and β-selinene – influential secondary constituents – that are the critical actors here, imparting both the typical Celery fragrance and much of the effects.

Apium graveolens is a familiar biennial plant native to southern Europe and cultivated extensively as a domestic vegetable. The essential oil is primarily produced in India, Holland, China, Hungary, and the US.[2] The calming aroma is suitable for massage blends and diffusers, and its earthy qualities have led some perfumers to use it in place of Oakmoss Absolute.

Freshness - dry - misterious


Extremely diffuse and powerful, it has a warm aura reminiscent of something woody and dry, a bit old and dirty,is mistery :o , which will bring freshness and depth to any formula that requires a bridge to unite bright citrus on top with different woods in the drydown. It will bring naturalness to different synthetic wood molecules. ¡Love!

Herbal Musk


EB's description of celery seed as reminiscent of herbal musk is on point. I haven't blended with it yet but I do enjoy the scent.
