    Cistus essential oil

    Seems OK. Got it to calm my kitty and me. It is supposed to smell flowery but smells more like pine with something else. It's OK.

    Intoxicating Fruity Floral

    Posted by Rene on 10th Mar 2016

    Intoxicating. Fruity Floral. Very very very sticky resin/gum that is thicker than Honey or Myrrh....so it is a bit difficult to dissolve into a carrier oil. But still love it. From what I have researched online, it is also known as the Rose of Sharon.

    Very interesting EO

    Posted by Rachelle Bassen on 22nd Jan 2016

    I was supposed by this essential oil. First,I thought Cistus might have been the same as these really divine smelling flowers I saw growing along a ditch in New Mexico..very similar-looking.

    The smell of this is quite wonderful, although so concentrated that it is hard to say if it's the same.

    The essential oil is the thickest I've ever seen...it's literally the consistency of goopy sap. You'll need to stick something in there to get some out. Or maybe heat it over a double broiler?? I'm not sure...I'll have to look more into it.

    Smells sort of medicinal, but honey-like. In a weird way, kind of an intriguing and alluring smell.

    The reason I recommend this, however, is that I discovered that when I mixed this with the South African lavender, it smells really close to rose!! Rose EO is so expensive that I'm happy I found this blend to be a pretty nice alternative.

    lovely however, difficult to work with

    This thick oil is very sticky and difficult to manage without preparations. I warmed mine up to make it more workable, then added my other oils and ingredients. With some patience and proper use, it's a great oil.
