Boronia Absolute

Boronia Absolute

Boronia Absolute is used primarily within perfumery and fragrancing applications. Due to Boronia's high cost and reportedly frequent adulteration, Boronia Absolute isn't commonly used within holistic aromatherapy. However, true Boronia Absolute possesses a beautiful, intoxicating, floral aroma with a sweet and fruity character.

Little reputable information is available regarding the therapeutic uses of Boronia Absolute. Due to its high monoterpene content (see below), Boronia Oil may act as a stimulant and may possibly offer some decongestant action. Emotionally, it is uplifting.
