A perennial classic. This earthy attar requires ten years to perfect and it is well worth the long wait. First, marigold flowers are smoked over smoldering cedar coals to coax out their distinct floral aroma. We are looking for a creamy, sweet and soft herbaceous essence here, but with absolutely no smoky residue. After distillation, the aging process does the rest. Ultimately, what you get is an impeccably smooth, layered and soulful fragrance which is just as captivating as it is therapeutic.

This essential oil is super concentrated and is meant to be applied neat in a very minute amount. Please exercise caution.
Apply minutely to wrists, bare shoulders, behind knees and your hair. Your choice!
Don’t want to wear it? No problem. Even by simply breathing the fragrance of the oil right from the bottle can have amazing therapeutic effects on the psyche! Try it!
Do dilute this essential oil in a carrier oil. Try our Organic Apricot Kernel Oil. It is great for scent dilution. We suggest 2-3 drops of this essential oil with one ounce of Apricot Kernel Oil. However, if you think that the fragrance is still not as strong as you’d like, then go ahead and add more drops of the essential oil to the carrier until you have it just right.
Do use this essential oil in an oil diffuser to fragrance your living space. Consider our Copper Aromatherapy Burner. This burner requires very little oil to create an amazing aromatic experience. Simply add some water to the copper bowl, light a candle underneath and add a touch of oil to the water. You’re in scent heaven!
Keep away from small children and pets.
