Tobacco Absolute

Tobacco Plantation

Tobacco Absolute possesses a deep, cigar-like tobacco aroma. It is primarily used within the scope of natural fragrancing and perfumery. It is especially nice to include in formulations for men and formulations that need a more masculine note.

Safety Information

The second edition of Essential Oil Safety does not include a profile for Tobacco Absolute (that I could find). Using Tobacco Absolute topically in extremely low dilutions may be prudent. [Robert Tisserand, Essential Oil Safety (United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone, 1995), 211.]

Important Information About the Profiles

The essential oil information provided on AromaWeb is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. The oil photos are intended to represent the typical and approximate color of each essential oil. However, oil color can vary based on harvesting, distillation and other factors. Profiles for several absolutes are included within the directory, and are denoted as such.

General Safety Information

Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children.
