Musk has been a sought-after and precious material dating back to the 6th century perfumers of Arabia and Byzantium. The powerful musk secretion contains pheromones that ancient people considered an aphrodisiac. A heady, animalistic scent, musk was even added to mortar that was used to build mosques. The very walls would release the fragrance when warmed by the sun. Musk is valued for more than its scent, however. Arab and Tibetan healers used it, and it continues to be an ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine.
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.
