This hardy, sweet bloom has long been cultivated in northern climates of Europe and Asia, but its Latin name, Syringa vulgaris, hints to ancient Greece. In Greek mythology, Pan, god of the forests, was enamored with a nymph named Syringa. The nymph was frightened of the god as he chased her through the trees and transformed into the fragrant flower. An early-blooming flower, lilacs are associated with spring renewal and symbolize youthful innocence, purity and pride.
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.
I have been very pleased with all the essential oils I\'ve purchased from Vetiver. The Lilac in particular. It is a true and natural scent. I use it primarily in soaps and secondly...view more in scented candles. I live in a region of New York State that is known for lilacs. The annual Lilac Festival draws people from all over the US and around the world. This essential oil is indeed world class. I\'ve tried other sources for my scents in the past and after trying Vetiver they\'ve become my exclusive supplier. view less
