Castoreum has a deep, rich, tenacious, leathery, woody scent,often with smoky undertones and hints of forest trees and plants. Castoreum is used as a fixative and a base to middle note in “Masculine”, Oriental, Chypre type perfumes, and in leather accords which it can generate almost single-handedly.
We have used Frankincense and Myrrh for medicine, cosmetics, perfume and incense since the dawn of civilization.
The amber-scented wax of Bushman’s Candle is perfect for cosmetics, candles, moustache waxes, and therapeutic skin-healing formulas and is easy to extract from the bark.
Labdanum, like many other resins, acts as a perming agent and when applied to the hair will set it and keep it in the desired style long after the resin is gone.
