NOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, please allow a minimum of 6 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Cancellations are not allowed because an item's not in stock. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk, essential and fragrance oils sold in 5+ lbs. and certain quantities of packaging materials.Our current supply of Oakmoss absolute (eff. 1/30/17) is low in atranol and is IFRA compliant. This new supply is completely different from previous Oakmoss absolutes offered by us. We sent samples to several customers who used to purchase our former Oakmoss absolute and asked for feedback. Their feedback has been extremely positive. Oakmoss absolute that is not classified as being low in atranol may carry possible substances that may cause allergic reactions including skin sensitization. You may visit the IFRA website: http://www.ifraorg.org/
Oakmoss is not a true flowering plant but a lichen (algae + fungus) that is extracted for its fragrance. Oakmoss grows well on the trunks of the Oak tree. Oakmoss absolute is a viscous liquid with an extremely intense aroma reminiscent of a damp forest floor.
The odor of this absolute is uplifting, cooling and calming. Its properties are more emotional and spiritual than physical. This is a liquid product with an amber-gold color which may vary from batch to batch. May irritate skin. Blends well with cedarwood, citrus, pine, rosemary and vetiver. Flashpoint: >200 F.
This absolute is used extensively in perfumery. Oakmoss products form important parts of the notes in all fougere, chypre or ‘moss’ perfumes and they are common ingredients in colognes, crepe de Chines, forest notes, new mown hay, pine fragrances, lavender bouquets, Oriental bases, fancy or modern bases, etc. They can lend body and naturalness, rich pleasant undertones and high fixative value in numerous types of floral fragrances as well.
Contraindications (dermal); Hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin; children under 2 years of age.
(Evernia prunastri) This absolute is obtained by molecular distillation and without using extraction solvents. Triethyl Citrate is used in this material as a carrier. Triethyl Citrate is an ester of citric acid used in foods as a flavoring agent and solvent. Country of origin: France.

This absolute was one of the best investments I've made. It smells like a fresh, clean, forest floor with sweet top notes. Smells very similar to the heart of most "sport" colognes in the market. You'll have to dilute it with another oil prior to use, since it's very thick out of the jar.

i really like this, i add it to my almond body butter it adds a nice richness, it is earthy and easy to use

Another item that is very hard to find, and CG carries it for an excellent price. I wish I would have ordered more than I did since I am already out of it, having used it as a fixative in solid perfume but at the same time making it one of the base notes in one of my blends. The scent is just right, not too "green" and yet woodsy. It is both stimulating and calming.

This could possibly be my favorite absolute so far!!!! It is an amazing scent you cant put your finger on but you love it anyway. DEFINITELY something I will continue to order!!!!

Earthy and warm
I could not get enough of this smell that smells like flowery, wet woods, and earth. Intense like patchouli but not in that incense/intense category. This absolute can be difficult to find- thanks CG! I've used it in CP soaps as a minor constituent, as such it adds depth, a bottom note that friends, family, and customers really like. I'm going to try using it alone in CP soap or in a solid perfume with a cypress or spruce plus orange/lime/lemon for a top note since I find that citrus scents, probably because of the low flash point, do not contribute enough to CP fragrance blends.
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner.
