Tuberose Absolute (Polianthus Tuberosa)
History and Anecdotal Information: Originally from Mexico, Tuberose has made its way to all corners of the earth and is popular in India, the Middle East, Africa and South America.When the Spaniards colonized Central America in the 15th Century, they learnt that the Aztecs used the Tuberose plant for its aromatic and subtle narcotic properties. They took the plant back to Europe, where it came to play a major role in the fragrant allure of the Moon Gardens. Victorian women strolled through these sweet-smelling and enchanting gardens after dusk, believing they can soak up the delicious scent while keeping their fashionably pale skin out of the sun.
General Benefits: Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Spasmodic
Skin Benefits: Anti-inflammatory, Anti-bacterial, Hydrating, Stimulating
Skin Care Applications: The active ingredients responsible for Tuberose’s intoxicating fragrance are Eugenol, Nerol, Farnesol, and Geraniol. Products containing high quality (some call it Medicinal grade)Tuberose Oil leave the skin and senses enveloped in a calming fragrance. Often, instead of adding the entire oil (as it is expensive), companies add individual components to create the same scent. However, the superior aromatic and therapeutic values lie in the original synergistic relationship between the various particles within the plant itself, without separating them to their individual components.
Aroma-Therpaeutic Value: Alongside its medicinal value, the oil is stimulating and relaxing with stress-relieving and aphrodisiac properties, making it popular worldwide.
