The leaf of the fig is often used as a protector of modesty, dating back to the story of Adam and Eve, where they covered their nakedness with fig leaves in shame after eating the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Even the plant itself exhibits a seeming display of modesty, wherein the flower blooms safely within the confines of the fruit. The word “sycophant” comes from the Greek word sykophantes, meaning”one who shows the fig,” which is achieved via a vulgar hand gesture.
All our synthetic fragrance notes are premium grade, alcohol-free, phthalate-free, and undiluted. We work hard to ensure that your perfume ingredients are top-quality, highly concentrated, and will mix neatly with both alcohol and oil bases. These are not ready to wear as fragrances – they MUST be diluted before applying directly to skin. It is always a good idea to do a patch test for allergies, with both natural and synthetic materials. And of course – do not eat the oils. No matter how yummy they may smell.
Note: Although these are phthalate-free, they are NOT non-toxic. Don't eat them. Don't drink them. Patch test on skin. Dilute before wearing.

A: Hi, Renee- the fig is synthetic. It is made of a combination of essential oils and aroma chemicals. For natural ingredients (i.e. they really are what they smell like), you'll want to stick to essential oils, which you can find here: https://vetiveraromatics.com/collections/essential-oils
