Cistus Essential Oil


Cistus oil (aka labdanum oil) is steam distilled from the crude gum labdanum or directly from the leaves, twigs and flowering tops of the plant cistus ladaniferus. The essential oil is an amber to pale orange liquid with a dry, woody musky odour. It is used extensively in oriental style perfumes and can be found adding flavour to food, alcoholic and soft drinks.

We also supply (subject to availability) cistus absolute and labdanum resinoid.
