According to legend, coffee was discovered by a goatherd in the Ethiopian highlands. Kaldi noticed his goats were full of energy after eating berries from a particular tree and reported the discovery to his local monastery. The abbot brewed a drink with the berries and found he stayed alert through long hours of prayer. From there, the heady beverage spread. In the Middle East, coffee houses became centers of social activity known as “Schools of the Wise.” Although Europeans were wary of the drink—called the “bitter invention of Satan” by some—Pope Clement VIII tried the beverage and gave it Papal approval.
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.
